Princess Pattycake is by far the most beautiful daughter of the King of Mo. Her deep blue eyes make the sky envious, and the roses blush when they see her cheeks. Her silken hair is like sunbeams, and her ears are like tiny, pink shells from the seashore. Princess Pattycake's only ugly feature was her terrible temper.

One day a young man named Timtom came to the palace and fell in love with Pattycake. He went to the Sorceress Maëtta, who gave him a golden pill to cure Pattycake's temper. Soon afterward, Timtom and the princess were married.
