King Midas and his daughter Marygold lived in a castle. King Midas loved his daughter but he loved gold more and wanted nothing but gold.
What have I done!
King Midas meets a stranger in his basement full of gold. The stranger tells him that he will grant one of Kind Midas' wishes. King Midas wishes that everything he touches turns into gold. The stranger says that his wish will come true the next day.
How do I get rid of the Golden touch?
Go to the river and use the water.
King Midas wakes up early in the morning to test to see if his wish came true. He touches his chair to see if it turns into gold but it does not. He is disappointed. Then when the first sunbeam shines through the room his sheets and blanket turn into gold. He then touches a book and it turns into gold. His clothes also turn into gold when he is changing.
It worked! Now I must turn my daughter back to normal!
King Midas found out he could not eat because he turns his food into gold. He starts to become extremely hungry. His discomfort starts to show and his daughter runs over to comfort him. He kisses his daughter's forehead. His daughter turns into gold.
King Midas sees how gold is not as worth as much as his daughter. The stranger appears once again and they talk about the king's wish. The king wants his golden touch to be gone so the stranger tells him to go to the river and use the water to turn everything back to normal.
King Midas brings a pitcher with him down to the river. He jumps into the water and tests to see if what the stranger told him was true. He touches a flower that stays its natural purple color. He uses the water to then turn his daughter back to normal.
