The story turned out to be more pages than I expected, but ebooks offer a unique design advantage. This is page one:
The leaves are designed to look like little human bodies, which will fall off and blow away. When you push the little “play” button at the end of the paragraph, the text will disappear, the tree will move out of screen left, then page two text will appear.
Bam! Two pages with only one illustration. Next comes “a masked ball of the most unusual magnificence” and the introduction of Prince Prospero.
