Bellarion the Fortunate – Historical Adventures to Help You Sleep

Bellarion the Fortunate – Historical Adventures to Help You Sleep

We pick up out classic bedtime tale as Bellarion and the strange friar accept the hospitality of a family of peasants. The friar nearly leaves Bellarion behind and his strange behaviour becomes stranger until they get a ride with some mules.

After lunch, and hopefully after you’ve fallen asleep, though the truth of the identity of the friar becomes clear as Bellarion finds himself in deep trouble.
