The Prince and the Porker


When Pignatius sees fresh pastries cooling on the windowsill of the palace kitchen, he's tempted to try them. Surely, the cook won't miss just one. But Pignatius's greed gets the better of him, and he eats all of the buns before sneaking into the palace in search of more treats. Before long, he finds himself in the prince's room trying on a wig and some clothes, and the servants mistake him for the real prince! 

When the actual prince return, Pignatius fears the worst but the prince saves Pignatius's bacon instead. The reimaginings of Mark Twain's classic The Prince and the Pauper is full of roll on the floor laughing moments with clever rhyming and plenty of puns.
