The Hapless prince Short Story For Kids

There once was a prince. Like all princes, lived in a palace in the middle of a huge park. His name was Henry.

Henry was a very spoiled prince. Anything she wanted was given to him. Nevertheless, he was not happy. Never laughed or cried.

Parents, the king and queen, were preoccupied with it.

– What do you lack?

Henry responded:

– I have all the toys in the world but what I lack is a balloon seriously.

– If that’s all … – the king and the queen said. And the prince offered a balloon seriously.

Henry spent the entire day with the balloon. Filled it with hot air and strolled over the palace like a bird.

But not laughed or cried. Everything went on as before. The king and the queen were worried.

– What do you lack?

– I have all the toys in the world and have a balloon seriously. What is still missing me is a lion in a cage.

– If that’s all … – answered the king and the queen. And offered the prince a lion in a cage.

Henry spent the entire day with the lion. Tried to teach him with a stick and gave him meat through the bars.

But not laughed or cried once. Everything went on as before. The king and the queen were worried.

– But what do you have? – Asked.

Henry responded:

– I have all the toys of the world, have a balloon and a lion in a cage. What is still missing me is a battalion of soldiers seriously.

– If that’s all … – answered the king and the queen. And the little prince offered a battalion of soldiers. For a whole day, Henry made ​​war exercises, marched, rode forward and backward with the soldiers.

But never laughed or cried. Everything went on as before.

One day, the prince met a boy. He was the son of the palace gardener. He was sitting at the doorstep and played with a bunny. She had nestled in his arms, made ​​him parties and gave him carrots.

The prince watched them and thought:

“I have all the toys of the world, have a balloon, a lion in a cage and a battalion of soldiers. What I lack is a rabbit snuggle in my arms and that I can throw parties and give carrots. ”

– Give me your rabbit – Henry said the boy.

– No – replied he. – I can not give you the rabbit.

The little prince returned to the palace and told the king and queen:

– I have all the toys of the world, have an air balloon, a lion in a cage and a battalion of soldiers. What is still missing is me a rabbit.

– If that’s all … – answered the king and the queen. And given the gift of a rabbit prince.

The prince spent all day with the rabbit. Walked with him in her arms, made ​​him party and gave him to eat carrots. But neither laughed nor wept. Everything went on as before.

“What I lack,” he thought, “is not a rabbit any. Is bunny gardener’s son. ”

Crossed the park to run and told the gardener’s son:

– Give me your rabbit. I give you all my toys.

– No – you said the little boy.

– Give me your rabbit – again asked the prince. – I give you all my toys and even a hot air balloon and a lion in a cage.

– No – replied the boy.

– Give me your rabbit – asked the prince for the last time. – I give you all my toys, plus an air balloon, a lion in a cage and even a battalion of soldiers.

– No – replied the boy.

So Henry was sad and, for the first time, began to cry.

The gardener’s son got scared and told him:

– I can not give you the rabbit because I like him, but we both play with him.
