The Spectacular Gift and Other Tales from Tell Me a Story

Story Summary

In order to win the hand of the princess, three princes set out to find the most spectacular gift. But when one uses his magic telescope to see the princess from miles away, he finds her on her deathbed. They all climb on the second prince's magic carpet and feed the princess the third's magic apple. A recuperated princess makes her choice for love, and ... they all live happily ever after. A nice retelling of a Moorish tale.
