The myth of King Midas is a cautionary tale about the dangers of believing that gold should be coveted above all things, and the foolishness of wishing without thinking. It appeared in Ovid's Metamorphosis, and has inspired many works of art and literature through the centuries. This is a retelling of the complete tale of the King with the Golden Touch, from the Gordian knot to the ears of an ass, in great detail and with an elegant style that will edify children and adults alike.
