His name was Fergus Greybar the Fourth, although everyone called him the Mirror Man because he lived in a wagon of mirrors pulled by two magnificent white horses named Look and See.
To everyone who saw it rolling slowly along the narrow roads of the countryside, the wagon looked exactly like a small house.
It was covered with boards that had been painted a gleaming white.
It had a bright red roof and bright red window shutters at tiny windows that were on both sides of the wagon.
Small flower boxes were beneath the windows, filled with yellow-eyed daisies and little sprigs of herbs that the Mirror Man used for cooking.
A red door was at the back of the wagon, with red steps that could unfold to touch the ground.
Underneath the wagon were four pull-out drawers. One contained cooking utensils. One was a table. One stored the Mirror Man's clothes. The fourth was a bed, where the Mirror Man slept when the weather was cool and pleasant and the night sky was filled with star-winks.
On the sides of the wagon, these words had been painted:
Come and see yourself as only you can,
Look in the mirrors of the Mirror Man.
