This beautifully written and classically illuminated book is a delight for all readers. "Long ago and far away" there were two peasant children who dreamed of escaping their mean guardian and living like royalty. There are also a host of royal figures who would love to escape their tedious lives. When a thief drops a mysterious pouch that is found by the children, everyone's lives become intertwined and may be transformed forever. Follow the King's silly quest to discover what's missing and the children's adventures trying to do the right thing.
