There was a family of three brothers. The older two were
very intelligent and much beloved by their parents; the youngest however was
considered to be a dunce and a pest and was always getting in his mother’s way.
One day, the king announced that he was offering his daughter’s hand in
marriage to whoever could build a flying ship. The older two brothers were
immediately sent on their way to try to construct the flying ship, while the
youngest was left behind. He pestered his mother until she let him go as well,
sending him off with simply a crust of bread and some water. He meets a manikin
on his journey to the castle, who gives him strange directions that lead him to
a flying ship and instructing him to take with him whoever he discovers along
the way. The youngest brother travels along, picking up all of the men he meets
on his way to the castle. When they arrive at the castle and the king sees the
rag-tag crew aboard the ship, he immediately decides that he will not let any
man so low marry his daughter. And so, he begins to give the youngest son
seemingly impossible tasks to complete before he can marry the princess. Lucky
for the youngest son, he has just the crew of men to help him! Download and start listening now!
