Rich watercolor painting of a rainbow colored castle, by Jordan Newhouse, age 7

The horse trotted up to a huge, colorful castle surrounded by a dazzling moat. People came out of their houses shouting, "The queen has arrived! The queen has arrived! Hurray, for the queen has come at last!" A woman approached me nervously and said, "We've been awaiting the red-haired maiden for many years now. We've kept the Rainbow Room ready." "I am honored to be your queen," I replied. And that's how I came to rule the Rainbow Kingdom.
