Otto is a young boy who is playing a game with a little girl named Mathilde. He hides in the woods and begins reading a book about a young boy named Otto. He suddenly realizes he has been in the woods for a long time and when he heads back toward the game, he becomes lost. Their father, the king, so desperately wanted a boy that he abandoned each of the girls to the care of a wicked witch. Otto reveals that his book is about the three girls and they beg him to read the ending so they will know what happens to them. To Otto's surprise, the book he is reading has no more words after the scene in which they meet. The moral of that story is that the princesses and Otto have to write their own story rather than reading about their lives in a book.
