They are set in the elements of snow, the mountains, the forest, ocean, and the frozen tundra.
In the beginning, Grandpa is telling young Alex the tales belonging to Lady the cat. A cat has nine lives, and therefore nine talestailsor stories. Thus the magic is woven, and the nine tales follow.
The first tale, The Kings Wish, is one of the stories that deal with the concept of anger and damage control, where the king wishes for peace of mind after his rage has ravaged his kingdom. Two others, Icewundall and The Blue God of Anger, show the benefits of control in unexpected ways.
Confronting danger and companionship is in the tale of The Boy with Blue Hair, and there is the The Miners Gold, where the miner earns love worth more than any gold. The unusual tale of A Tundra Thaw is a horrific, mystical spell, but perseverance wins the day for its hero, Giove.
Mystery, magic, and love are woven in tales six and seven, A Mothers Myth and The Message Across the Sea. A chilling but amusing note is in the wondrous tale of The Wandering Prince.
At the end of nine tales, Alex asks for more. And the last tale, a practical unicorn helps a wood nymph in Wispa and the Unicorn, rounding the stories off to ten tales.
