Finally, he could bear it no longer, and summoned the Chief Advisor to him.
‘Herringbone,’ he said, not looking the old man in the eye, ‘there’s a house on the corner, on the way to the park. Rather a nice cottage. Large-ish garden.’
‘The Dovetail house, Your Majesty?’
‘Oh, that’s who lives there, is it?’ said King Fred airily. ‘Well, it occurs to me that it’s rather a big place for a small family. I think I’ve heard there are only two of them, is that correct?’
‘Perfectly correct, Your Majesty. Just two, since the mother—’
‘It doesn’t really seem fair, Herringbone,’ King Fred said loudly, ‘for that nice, spacious cottage to be given to only two people, when there are families of five or six, I believe, who’d be happy with a little more room.’
‘You’d like me to move the Dovetails, Your Majesty?’
‘Yes, I think so,’ said King Fred, pretending to be very interested in the tip of his satin shoe.
ACTIVITY: Write a letter to the Dovetails ordering them to move to a smaller cottage near the graveyard. This is an order so think carefully about the language you use. Will you make your order brief and short or will you make the order sound nicer with some information about why this is a good choice?
