A raja decrees that the villagers must give most of the rice they harvest to him. He promises to store it safely and distribute it in times of famine, but when famine comes, the raja refuses to share the rice, so Rani, a village girl, thinks of a plan to return the rice to the people. (Houghton Mifflin Harcourt Trophies, 2005)
