This is the story of "Littlefoot and The Dark Crystal". You can read along with me in your book. You will know when it is time to turn the page when you hear the chimes ring like this. (chimes ring) Let's begin now.
In another time, another world, gentle Gelflings and simple Podlings lived together in peace. Every 1,000 years, the Three Suns of this world would come together in a Great Conjunction of blinding light. Tremendous energy would pass through a magical Crystal located at the heart of a shining Castle. But during the last Great Conjunction, the Crystal cracked, and a single Crystal Shard broke off and was lost. The Crystal darkened, and evil came into the world.
