"The Magic Walking Stick" is a fantastical children's story about a pair of magical walking sticks; one that will cease to function if it is used for any practical purpose, and another that will cease to function if it isn't. Unfortunately, our protagonist doesn't know which one he possesses. It's a charming and entertaining tale perfect for bedtime reading.
