Once upon a time..... What person, adult or child, if truthful, does not love a good fairy tale? The King's Legacy, a wonderful story book of a search, is presented in fairy tale form.

Jim Stovall, has brought us the lovely story of a benevolent and loved, wise king, who is on a search. A search to commemorate his service as king. He calls forth the wise men, asking their opinions. Many suggestions were put forth. The suggestion that caught his attention, however was the passing forth of the “Wisdom of the Ages.”

After much deliberation and seeking, and thinking, the king, and the wise men realize, they know not the “Wisdom of the Ages.” Thus begins the true heart of our story. One by one, people from all walk of life, come forth to share the wisdom, their experience's have brought them to realize. From the mighty judge, the rich banker, the lowly farmer, the funny jester, all who wish to do so, are invited to present their wisdom.

After days and days of hearing great truths, wisdom filled speeches. The King makes a declaration that at a certain time he will present the “Wisdom of the Ages.” Only to realize he truly does not know what the wisdom of the ages is.
