King's Behind (The)
by Raquel Saiz
Age Range: 6-8
The King’s day got off to a bad start when he accidently sat on a pin which got stuck in his behind. Despite begging for help from his servant, who in turn asks for assistance from the Count, Marques and Duke, who all think they are of so little importance that they can’t possibly touch the royal posterior to pull it out! Even the Queen, when asked to intervene, believes she is intended for more important things than touching the King’s behind. At last a solution is found and the King is finally able to sit down again and have his breakfast.
