The King Who Couldn't Laugh. A small story in five tiny chapters.
By Stella Mead

Chapter One
                            The King

       Long ago there lived a king who was called Rumpisulk. He had a fine palace to live in, and more gold than any other king in the whole world. But, all day long he lay upon a fine bed, hung with silk curtains, and yawned, and yawned, and yawned.
"Bah-bah-bah!" yawned King Rumpisulk. "What a weary world this is" What a weary, weary world this is!" Everything I see and everything I do makes me tired to death. Bah-bah-bah!"
      On each side of the king's fine bed stood a Lord of the Court, dressed in red and silver, with a little gold buckle on his silver shoes. King Rumpisulk turned to one of these Lords of the Court, and said. "What is the news? Tell me the latest news, perhaps it will amuse me."
      The Lord of the Court could not answer at once for the king had just yawned again, and it was the rule of the court that every time the king yawned the Lords of the Court must yawn too.
