When the fairies finished reading, Madam Toad continued. "The Princess of Haiku is missing. I have consulted Mother Nature. We are not sure if she has been kidnapped, or if she is just lost. And at this point, we don't know if the Glut sisters are involved.
"Already, it is obvious that something is very wrong. The Princess is not just on unexplained holiday. Simple pleasure is already being affected. If we don't find her, and help to correct the problem, it will disappear completely."
As the fairies listened carefully, Madam Toad explained further. "Dissatisfaction in simple things is growing. It has started in children and will soon spread to adults. Eventually, it will affect all other creatures as well. If this is not corrected, all pleasure in simple things will be lost to greed, chaos, and materialism."
