Synopsis

Every hundred years, Mother Goose visits a new kingdom to determine whether its story is worthy of being recorded in her fabled Book of Rhyme. This year, she has chosen the Kingdom of Mirth, and Old King Cole and his subjects are preparing to celebrate her arrival with the perfect Festivities. But treachery is afoot; spies from the Kingdom of Dearth are determined to thwart Mirth’s chance for Happily-Ever-After. As the subjects of Mirth find their lives turned topsy-turvy, they discover the secret to Happiness lies not with perfection, but in the imperfect world that is Life.
