El rey y su torre
Al rey del pequeño país de Chiquilandia le gusta vivir en su casa y leer libros de jardinería. Nunca tuvo un castillo, ni quiso tenerlo, hasta el día en que sus súbditos le regalan una torre digna de un rey. Desde lo alto de su nuevo hogar, divisa el castillo de un reino vecino, y la envidia lo lleva a construir la torre más alta del mundo, olvidándose por completo de su pueblo y de su amado árbol mágico.
This is a story with traditional characters, but unique plot line. The King of Chiquilandia likes to be in his house and read gardening books. He has never had a castle nor has ever wanted one, until one day his subjects give him a tower worthy of a king. From his new perspective at the top of his tower, he sees the neighboring kingdom. He becomes envious of their castle and builds the tallest tower in the world. His obsession with his tower leads him to neglect his people and his beloved magic tree.
