Und dann war er da! Acht Meter groß war er. Seinen schwarzen Umhang trug er so elegant wie ein vornehmer Herr. Die dünne Trompete hatte er immer noch in der Hand. So schritt er würdevoll über den königlichen Parkrasen auf das Fenster zu. Die Zofe kreischte. Die Königin seufzte. Und Sophiechen winkte. Der gute Riese GuRie pustet den Menschenkindern mit einer Trompete schöne Träume in die Schlafzimmer – bis Sophiechen ihn eines Nachts dabei entdeckt.
