This is the tale of the beautiful princess who is being kept prisoner in the tower by the king.  You see, she bakes the best pies and the king just loves pies.  He wants to keep her making pies forever.  But she longs to find love and be free.  Each time a prince comes to request her hand, the king sets up tasks that must be done.  Tasks that cannot be done.  And then Prince Wilbur arrives.  Unfortunately, the book's artist is having trouble keeping up with the story so things may not turn out as they should!
