Summary
Friends Jack, Zack, and Caspar build a fort and spend the day defending it from imaginary dragons and beasts. As it gets dark, "giants" (parents coming to collect Jack's friends) carry away first Sir Zack, and then Caspar, and King Jack is left to face the night creatures all alone. Brave at first, King Jack finally quails when a large shadow looms over the fort -- but it turns out to be Jack's mom and dad, coming to take him to bed. -- Description by Ellen Foreman
