'A queen wants a cat’ is a story book for Class I students to be used as supplementary reading material. It is a simple story of a queen who simply wants a cat. But her simple desire gets changed as the message is passed on by a person to another till the king hears that the queen wants a tiger! The king is shell-shocked and falls from his royal throne! The story tells us how a simple message might get all very wrong at the end as messengers add colours of their imagination to it. Children are expected to read it and enjoy the turn of the events that take place as the story progresses. Finally, they will be able to get the lesson as well.
