Summary
  • A clever, cheerful, hard-working farmer's son wins the hand of a Chinese princess by outwitting her father the Emperor, who treasures his daughter more than all the rice in China
  • When a humble farmer named Pong Lo asks for the hand of the Emperor?s beautiful daughter, the Emperor is enraged. Whoever heard of a peasant marrying a princess? But Pong Lo is wiser than the Emperor knows. And when he concocts a potion that saves the Princess?s life, the Emperor gladly offers him any reward he chooses?except the Princess. Pong Lo makes a surprising request. He asks for a single grain of rice, doubled every day for one hundred days. The baffled Emperor obliges?only to discover that if you?re as clever as Pong Lo, you can turn a single grain of rice into all the wealth and happiness in the world!
