Princess Beatrice loves to dress up - and she loves to wear lots of jewels. When a Rotten Robber kidnaps Beatrice and tries to steal the `glittering goodies', he finds he has more than met his match. Princess Beatrice outsmarts the Rotten Robber and has him trussed up like a turkey before you can say `ten tiaras'. As punishment for kidnapping Princess Beatrice, the robber is given an enormous tin of polish and is made cleaner and polisher of the royal treasures.
