When two young friends, Hope and Trusty, purchase a pair of talking birds, they have no idea what adventure lies ahead! In this fun retelling of an ancient Greek play, we accompany Hope and Trusty to the Land of the Birds, where democratic procedures are maintained and where all birds are equal. Who is King Hoopoe? Why did he summon a bird assembly? Hope and Trusty are trespassers and must face the consequences! The birds are angry and unforgiving . . . Can the two friends win over the assembly? How do the Olympian gods get involved in all of this?
Sky Cloud City is inspired by the play Ornithes (The Birds, 414 BC) by the ancient Greek playwright Aristophanes.

Meet Arthur, the son of a blacksmith. His leisurely naps in the forest are frequently interrupted by pestering flies, so he crafts a sword to battle them. The verse he inscribes on it gets him in trouble. Following an unexpected encounter with two travelers, he takes off on an adventure where he faces foes much larger than flies.
Inspired by a Laconian / Spartan folk tale.
