the king and the moon

Once in the Caribbean, there was a king who always got what he wanted – the finest foods, the fanciest clothes and the newest gadgets. Everything the king owned had to be the biggest and the best. But there was one thing he wanted that he couldn’t have. More than anything, the king wanted to touch the moon. Every night, he stood on his balcony and stared at the silvery-white sphere hanging in the sky and wished that he could reach it. One day, he decided enough was enough.“Am I not the richest and most powerful man in these islands?” he thought.“Of course I can touch the moon!” He summoned the royal carpenter.“I have an important job for you,” said the king. “I need you to build…

the trojan horse

In ancient Greece, Eris was in a foul mood. She was the only goddess who hadn’t been invited to an important wedding and she was deeply insulted. Eris wasn’t on the guest list because she was a famous troublemaker, but she was planning to cause trouble anyway.

As their bickering grew louder, Eris smirked and sneaked away.“Enough!” thundered…

Once in India, a poor farmer bought a bull calf for his farm. He hoped the calf would grow up to be big and strong, so he took good care of him and fed him well. The bull was so good-natured, the farmer named him Delightful. Though the calf had a gentle name, he grew up to be the strongest bull in the land.One day, Delightful decided he wanted to repay his master for his kindness. “You have cared for me and fed me well over the years.

goldilocks' café

It was opening day at Goldilocks’ new café and she wanted everything to be just right. Old MacDonald the farmer had just dropped off a big tray of eggs, freshly laid by Henny Penny. “Hansel, can you put away the eggs and slice the bread while I finish the breakfast menu, please?” Goldilocks had hired Hansel to help out. After being locked up by a mean old witch, Hansel loved anything to do with food.“There,” said Goldilocks. “My very first special: Happy Face Eggs on Toast. Who can resist a happy face? And if people don’t like eggs, there are plenty of other treats to choose from.”She was right. Lining the shelves of Goldie’s Café was every type of cereal you could ever imagine. She had a hundred different…
