Once upon a time, there lived a very kind king and queen, who ruled over a distant land. They had always wanted to have a child of their own to love and care for, but no matter times they wished, they never had one.
One morning, the queen went to bathe in a small river that was on the edge of the land. As she bathed, a frog hopped out of the water and onto a lily pad that was near her. The queen noticed the frog and stopped bathing. Then the frog spoke to her. "Your wishes
had been heard and so when the first flowers of spring bloom, a daughter shall be born to you." The queen was awestruck at hearing the frog speak, nevertheless she was incredibly happy with the news. "Oh thank you, kind frog", she said.
