The king loves to run and jump and ride his horse - but he also loves to eat. Soon he is too fat to run, jump and ride his horse and the delicious dishes prepared by his cooks no longer seem so good. One night he is really sick from over-eating and he sacks the cooks. As he feels better and a little hungry he is upset when he is unable to find anyone who can make him breakfast. The next day the stable boy finds the king hungry and sad and gives him his lunch - brown bread and honey! From then on the two lunch together and soon the king is able to run, jump and ride his horse again.
