In this 320th issue of the Baba Indaba's Children's Stories series, Baba Indaba narrates the Fairy Tale - "THE INVISIBLE PRINCE".

ONCE upon a time, a long, long ago and far, far away, there was lived a Fairy who had power over the earth, the sea, fire, and the air; and this Fairy had four sons. The eldest, who was quick and lively, with a vivid imagination, she made Lord of Fire, which was in her opinion the noblest of all the elements. To the second son, whose wisdom and prudence made amends for his being rather dull, she gave the government of the earth. The third was wild and savage, and of monstrous stature; and the Fairy, his mother, who was ashamed of his defects, hoped to hide them by creating him King of the Seas. The youngest, who was the slave of his passions and of a very uncertain temper, became Prince of the Air.

Being the youngest, he was naturally his mother's favourite; but this did not blind her to his weaknesses, and she foresaw that some day he would suffer much pain through falling in love.One day the Fairy had to leave the palace to attend to some business, begging him never to go beyond the grounds, he at once jumped at the chance of disobeying his mother.

Left to himself the Prince soon forgot the wise counsels of his mother, and feeling very much bored with his own company, he ordered some of the spirits of the air to carry him to the court of a neighbouring sovereign. The King of this island had a daughter named Rosalie, who was more lovely than any girl in the whole world. No sooner had the eyes of the Prince of the Air rested on her than he forgot all the terrible woes which had been prophesied to him ever since he was born.

What happened next you may ask? Did the Prince and Rosalie fall in love and did woe befall the Prince as his mother had prophesied? If woe did befall the Prince, was it so bad it would prevent him from returning home or would it force him on an alternative path? Well to find the answers to these questions, and others you may have, you will have to download and read this story to find out for yourself!
