The Royal Baby was sleeping. But then...
KA-CHING! KA-CHING! KA-CHING!
"Oh no, what's that noise?" moaned the Royal Nanny.
She opened the window, and saw that it was thousands of merchandisers cashing in on a fortunate opportunity. Within seconds, the Royal Baby was awake again.
WAH! WAH! WAH!
"What are we going to do?" asked the haggard Prince. Everyone looked at each other, and then the Cleverest Princess spoke up.
"Leave this to me!" she said.
She took out her copy of Shh! Don't Wake the Royal Baby
and started reading.
She read one page.
She read two pages.
She read three pages...
... and the baby was asleep!
"Well!" she said to herself. "That was easy!" Then she looked round...
... and found that the whole Royal Family was asleep too!
Yes, the book was so dull that every single one of them had dropped off.
"Even better than I'd expected," said the Cleverest Princess. "I'll be able to read some Proust instead of this fucking mass-produced crap." [Surely some mistake? - Ed.]
