The 13 Clocks

Our rating: ****

The evil Duke is so cold, he froze time on the clocks in his castle. He also claims to be the uncle of the beautiful princess Saralinda, who (of course) every prince wants to marry. Enter Prince Zorn, who (again, of course) wants to marry the princess. But it’s not that easy. The duke has a test for every prince who comes along, and he tells Zorn to bring him jewels equal to Zorn’s father’s treasury in 24 hours! Even with the help of the one and only Golux, can Zorn accomplish this task?

Well, it’s a fairy tale, what do you think happens? Thurber has quite a weird take on fairy tales. If you want more, try The White Deer.
