Summary A classic picture book fable about kindness by the beloved children's book creator of Frog and Toad. Once upon a time a prince was born. The kingdom was excited and proud. But Prince Bertram was not a thoughtful boy. He broke all of his toys, put spiders in the soup, and pulled up all the roses in the royal garden. If that wasn't bad enough, he loved to shoot pebbles at townsfolk with his peashooter! As each year passed, he grew naughtier and more unkind . . . until the day a witch cast a spell on him for his bad behavior. Will Bertram learn to be kind and eventually break the curse? This classic fable embodies the Golden Rule: Always treat others the way you would like to be treated.
