This is the story of a king who believed that bigger is better and had everything in his kingdom made ridiculously large. He decided he wanted the biggest and best tulip in all the world. So he ordered a gigantic flower pot to be made, and climbed a ladder up to the top of the flowerpot nearly every day waiting for the tulip. When the tulip did finally grow, it was beautiful, but ordinary sized, and the king realized that even with all his power he couldn't change the size of a flower. ( )
