Abstract:

This is a story of a hapless, happy king who has too many accountants and not enough money. His crown jewels are always falling out and rolling under the throne, the palace ceiling leaks, and every time he counts his accountants, the number changes--and gets higher! The Chief Accountant determines he must save the kingdom by firing the King's beloved fiddlers, which is a tragedy in a kingdom where music is happiness and happiness is music. But the fiddlers' salary, put back into the palace, fixes everything except the happiness of the kingdom.
