The little town of Blueberry Dell is expecting a visit from the High Prince. The mayor, Lady Mole, Printer Mole, and the others are in a flurry to prepare Clover Hall and outdo each other in getting the best of everything for the Prince. But when compassionate Happy Mole wants to take time to help a humble traveler, the more "proper" residents scold him; then they send him and the traveler away.
Although the town is ready for the Prince when he arrives - with a feast and decorations and a specially built brass bed - they are shocked to discover what the Prince considers "the best of Blueberry Dell."
