The Gargoyle is Ruby's oldest friend. He lives by the clock on the wall and strikes the hour - on the hour - every hour. He keeps a gentle eye on fearless Ruby. Ruby Red has many friends. Cousin Bellbine drops in with Rocket, the goat. Sweet William and Grandma Samphire live a day's walk upstream. And deep down dark in the middle of the night - when all good adventures begin - Floyd the Mechanical Wonder Horse arrives. But the Gargoyle is not altogether pleased to see him. Can he be feeling jealous?
