Once upon a time there was little man whom no-one believed. His name was Henry, and he loved to go to parties. But when he said he would go, no-one thought he would turn up. And sometimes he didn't believe himself that he would go to the party. One day there was a fancy-dress party at the house of his cousin, the Lady Esmerelda Wallop-Smythe. "I'll be there!" Henry said. "Yeah, in a cocked hat!" said the Lady Esmerelda. So when he arrived in his best britches and dress uniform, he found that he was the only one who had decided to attend the party in fancy dress. Everyone else there was in civvies. And in fact everyone else there was merely visiting te Lady Esmerelda's lovely stately home. And Henry wished he had saved his cocked hat for another time.
