A small boy has a big talent.  He can use the clouds to make thread.  He sits on top of his hill with his loom and spinning wheel and uses the clouds to make beautiful scarves.  But only two.  He knows he doesn't need any more than that and he is not a greedy boy.  But when the king finds out about the boy's gift, he forces the boy to use the clouds to make him clothes.  So many clothes that they use up all the clouds.  Without clouds, there can be no rain.  Without rain, crops can't grow.  Has the king's greed doomed the kingdom?
