C just finished reading the story of King Midas from a children's anthology. This is her synopsis:
There was this king, and he loved gold. And he loved his little daughter Marigold, too. One day he got the power to turn things to gold. Everything he touched, or hugged, or kissed, turned to gold! But then he accidentally turned Marigold to gold, too. Then he lost the power, and everything went back to normal. These stories are dramatic, but they're trying to teach me, so I just read them.
