The King of Hameleen / Was once so mean / That he made life one bad dream / He would stomp his feet and frown / He would yell and throw down his crown / With his desserts he would take careful aim / And have his subjects ducking cupcakes, as fast as they came / Until one day little Ned / Took aim at the King’s big, big head.
A pilot stranded in the desert awakes one morning to see, standing before him, the most extraordinary little fellow. "Please," asks the stranger, "draw me a sheep." And the pilot realizes that when life's events are too difficult to understand, there is no choice but to succumb to their mysteries. He pulls out pencil and paper... And thus begins this wise and enchanting fable that, in teaching the secret of what is really important in life, has changed forever the world for its readers.
