Pignatius was passing the palace one day, when he saw ten fresh buns left to cool on a tray . . .
When Pignatius sees fresh pastries cooling on the windowsill of the palace kitchen, he's tempted to try them. Surely, the cook won’t miss just one. But Pignatius's greed gets the better of him, and he eats all the buns before sneaking into the palace in search of more treats. Before long, he finds himself in the prince’s room trying on a wig and some clothes, and the servants mistake him for the real prince! When the actual prince returns, Pignatius fears the worst, but the prince saves Pignatius's bacon instead. It turns out that the prince has always wanted a double to deal with a particularly frightening problem — his aunt Alice! This hilarious reimagining of Mark Twain’s classic The Prince and the Pauper is sure to make kids laugh.
