"Dearest, for my sake, wish what I tell you to." "Why, of course I will," said Melisande. The Queen whispered in her ear, and Melisande nodded. Then she said, "I wish I had golden hair a yard long, and that it would grow an inch every day, and grow twice as fast every time it was cut..."

You can imagine what happens next. According to the formula, they promise the Princess's hand in marriage to the Prince who can solve this problem.

There is a great deal of humor throughout and it is illustrated very well, though I'm not an uberfan of Lynch's caricatures.
