Bring him back to life, your Majesty, with your wand! Then out of nowhere, she turned herself into a tree! She threated to put a curse upon the kingdom, and after the King wringing his hands at the stump, Babbitty hopped out of the grounds and far away, a golden statue of the washerwoman stood upon the tree stump, and no witch or wizard was ever persecuted in the kingdom again.
Dramatic would be when the King believed the charlatan that he was a wizard, we could all figure out that the results of the King having magical powers is not possible.
The setting is the magical period which brings interest to many readers. But more than just a story about the triumph of a clever witch, the tale warns against human weaknesses of greed, arrogance, selfishness and duplicity, and shows how these errant but not evil characters come to learn the error of their ways.

This especially affects people of our age group because a lot of teens will lie in order to get out of a situation.
He formed an army, which he called the Brigade of Witch-Hunters, and armed them with black hounds. At the same time, he wanted an Instructor in Magic, so he made calls for a wizard or witch from one of the nearby villages to teach him. Of course, nobody dared to volunteer, except for a cunning charlatan who had no magical powers. He convinced the foolish King that he would be able to teach him by performing a few simple tricks. Once in position, the charlatan told the King that he needed money so that he could purchase a magic wand, precious rubies for casting charms and silver chalices for storing potions. This was another trick; the charlaton only wanted the treasures for himself.
