Two boys, walking through a forest, suddenly hear a voice coming from a tree. The Talking Tree tells them to bring it food and drink. Later, they notice some marks on the ground, close to the tree. They begin to think the tree might not be magic after all. Perhaps someone they know is trying to trick them!

In other tales, a forgetful young man makes a mistake, and as a result, a bank robber is caught; a young princess asks for the impossible, and learns a lesson; and two girls go looking for a ghost, and find a treasure hunter.

There are plenty of surprises in this unusual collection of short stories.
