Description

Bored just sitting around their garden over breakfast, three princesses decide to swap "jobs" with their servants. The housekeeper gives them a long list of chores to keep them busy for the day: sweeping, dusting, polishing, tending to the gardens, and many other tedious tasks. The next morning, when the princesses find themselves appreciating the fruits of their own labors they decide that a proclamation is in order: "Rest when you are tired. Eat when you are hungry..." and many other necessary and wonderful rules. Will life ever be the same again in this princessdom by the sea?
