Story Summary

To avoid having to marry when she is only 14, a young princess claims to be in love with a toad. A king from a neighboring kingdom confides to her father that he is sure the toad is enchanted and must only have the spell broken to become a handsome prince. But despite his best efforts, the court enchanter can only produce a rabbit, then a sports car, which is fine with the princess since she wants to be an astronaut anyway.
