The Trueheart clan has seven sons, six of whom are often called on to enter the Land of Stories and bring stories to an exciting conclusion. Tom, the youngest, and the only one not named Jack, worries that he lacks the bravery to carry on the family's tradition of bringing exciting exploits and happily-ever-after endings to the Land of Stories.
