The King of the Sea is furious because he is bored, no one in the whole court can understand him, neither the buffoon fish, nor the juggling octopus, nor the dolphin orchestra. That would not be so terrible if it were not because the island that is next to the Royal Palace had to suffer the consequences of the storms that rises everytime the King loses his temper. So Daniel, an adventurous and intelligent child, decides to challenge the King and in this way arises the Feast of Riddles.
