King Lion is sad because it has not rained in his country for too long, and now not ony will nothing grow, but also the land is too hard to dig. He decides to ask his rich (fat) neighbour for help. But he is mistaken for a beggar and a robber, and is pursued home by Fat King and his army...and his supply trucks. The soldiers in their trucks are so heavy, that they leave deep ruts in the land, and when it finally rains the land is well prepared for seeds.
It's War, but not as we know it - or should that be Peace? Or even peas?!!
