A king, who wants for nothing, learns that a life of plenty doesn’t make up for a lack of skills or common sense. Once he has learned his lesson, the king is careful to make sure that his daughter marries a man who can earn his own living. Rather than the usual happily-ever-after story of a prince and princess, this tale shows children that taking the time to learn is far better, in the long run, than being handed everything on a plate.
