We've been looking everywhere for you. Are you still coming to the Royal Banquet with us?
Faintly Macabre tells a story about a king, his sons and rhyme and Reason. She tells Tock and Milo that a long time ago a prince came to the Kingdom of Wisdom and started fighting away demons. He had two sons and they each went a different way, one founding Digitopolis and the other founding Dictionopolis. Towards the end of the story, we learn about the story of Rhyme and Reason.
After the story, Tock and Milo want to rescue Rhyme and Reason. Faintly Macabre tells them that will be very hard because the Castle in the Air is very far away, and demons are guarding the castle. She also says there is not much a little boy and a dog could do.
When Tock and Milo escape, the king’s cabinet is waiting forthem. They say they have been looking everywhere for Tock and Milo. The king’s cabinet tells them that they will drive, but Milo says he doesn’t want to leavehis car. The cabinet says it’s okay andthey start driving to the king’s palace.
