Five fairy tales teach tolerance in The Duke Who Outlawed Jelly Beans: And Other Stories (1991) by Valentine, illus. by Schmidt. "The Frog Prince" leaves his own wicked parents to live with his rescuer, Nicholas, and his family. In the title story, a duke decrees that all children must have one mother and one father; the kids, mocking this and other silly laws, reveal the duke's folly.
