Summary

Although King Midas is a kind man, he always wants MORE: more jewels, more silver, more gold. So when's he's granted a wish for doing a good deed, he asks that everything he touches turn to gold. But after his flowers, his food, and even his daughter are transformed, he learns what is truly valuable.
