Description
Excerpt: Once upon a time, so long ago that I have quite forgotten the date, there lived a king and queen who had no children. And the king said to himself, ?All the queens of my acquaintance have children, some three, some seven, and some as many as twelve; and my queen has not one. I feel ill?used.? So he made up his mind to be cross with his wife about it. But she bore it all like a good patient queen as she was. Then the king grew very cross indeed. But the queen pretended to take it all as a joke, and a very good one too.
