The Story…

Hear Ye! Hear Ye! Princess Poppy is in peril! She was supposed to marry Duke Dudley today, but she is missing! When she didn’t come down to breakfast the royal family knew something was wrong.

The royal detective has been summoned to determine who has kidnapped her. Be alert! We must find the Princess!

Character Description Example

Cook– Poppy is a picky eater. She constantly complains about the cook’s food. (Except for the poppy seed muffins, which she adores for breakfast.) The cook lives in fear of being fired because Poppy complains so much. If Poppy weren’t around everything would be fine. The cook really is an excellent chef with a kind heart. In fact, the chef often sneaks food from the kitchen, down the garden path, and out to feed the peasants. After all, the peasants and the gardener grow the food that feeds the whole kingdom. Shouldn’t they share in the harvest? The king and queen would not like it if the cook were helping the poor. (Muffin crumbs were found on the garden path.) The Cook last saw Poppy last night when Poppy complained about dinner.
