king ward

Prince Pierre found a trusty guide who directed him inside of Basketville.

The Prince came to Vermont courtesy of King Ward who operates a fine livery of motor coaches.
Here the Prince points the way and gets ready to lend his assistance to the driver. The Prince found he had problems reaching the pedals

displays

When Pierre heard about Basketville, he thought it was just another little village in Vermont. He soon found out it was part of the town of Putney, VT and very special.

The "Hall of Displays" was amazing! Everyone was made out of basket materials!

Prince Pierre met the head of Basketville's Moose Club and he was invited to speak at a Moose Club meeting.

No...The dinosaur was NOT eating the donkey!

You could only dream of catching a fish like this.

This was the biggest lion that Pierre had ever seen!
