The theme is a simple plot about a King who loses his gold false teeth. The Clown, or Court Jester, knows all along where the teeth are. Meanwhile, it contains a moral about respect for other people. The clothes and shoes illustrated were inspired by authentic fashion from the 1500's. The funny story is described in verse form with cartoon illustrations. Poetry is coming back into school curriculums as a form of the English language beneficial to the education of children. It teaches language structure and how to condense a story in a concise, rhythmic way. Therefore the book contains a "How to write limericks" section. They are fun to compose and, on completion, an achievement that teaches children to think precisely. In addition, there is a mathematical puzzle page with Kidzudoku exercises with numbers to solve Sudoku type puzzles. As well, there are revolutionary and original pages of Sudoku puzzles that can be colored. There is Stinkeydoku (animals), Smileydoku (funny faces inside geometric forms) and Smellydoku (flowers). Each puzzle has a spelling test. The puzzles are not only a lot of fun to do, but also teaches children to draw intricate objects within a specific framework. The original characters in the story are then outlined on coloring pages that include Chateau Kostalot, where it can be assumed the King, Queen, Clown and the Court live. As a keepsake, the last page is for memorabilia. It is always a lot of fun to recall happy memories later on in life.
