    This is one of the more memorable stories in this audio collection. Alan Rickman is the narrator par excellence (I think I would pay to listen to him read the phone book), and the story itself is very witty and charming -- loved it!

    Great fable about a king with an all powerful ring and what happens when he loses it. Wonderfully read by the late great Alan Rickman.
