"'King Puggy...lives in a ruined castle on a hill with his seven madcap daughters. The old king's wife died of a fit of shrieks when all the Princesses were very young. Now Puggy and his seven maids live all alone, wreaking every kind of hob and havoc on their hill: rolling boulders down on passersby, turning rivers from their normal course, stealing gems and silks from caravans so they can dress in gawdy masquerade and play their wild and eerie games by jack-o'-lantern light.' The Royal Recorder raised his hands and shook his head. 'Every night is Hallowe'en on Puggy's Hill.'" - James Thurber, The White Deer
