A long time ago there was a fat little king who ruled over the land as far as he could see in every direction. He was very wise, and his kingdom was a happy one. His wife, the Queen, was a very good cook and made him a pickle-chiffon pie every day. But every kingdom has problems. The King had a daughter, she was very nice and very beautiful, and every prince in the neighborhood wanted to marry her. Every day they came to the palace with flowers and gifts for her. To be polite she would ask them all to stay for dinner. This meant there would be less pickle-chiffon pie for the King. That was his problem! What solution does the King come up with to save his kingdom from this tragedy?
