One day, however, a young apprentice named Miro accepts the challenge to cut the king's hair. When he discovers that the king has goat ears, Miro is careful not to tell anyone. But alas, secrets have a way of being found out! What will the king do when he learns that everyone in town knows his secret?

Outstanding book. A profound yet easily understood story about self-acceptance. The King learns to like himself just the way he is. One of the best books about inclusion.

This book was weird because a goat changed the prince into a goat just like him.Also that was weird than usual.
