The Great Chinese Race (extract)

A very long time ago in Ancient China there lived an emperor who was worried that the people of China had no calendar.  For years he had thought about it and he decided that something had to be done.   He called all his best advisors and all the intelligent men in his kingdom to his palace and gave them the very difficult task of organising the Great Chinese calendar. 

There were a lot of very clever and proud people in the kingdom and each thought their idea was the best.  Every time they all met, there was a lot of shouting, shaking of the heads and thumping of fists on the table in the grand palace dining room.  Each of the advisors had very different ideas and in the end, nothing came out of it. The emperor got very fed up of the all the bickering and the arguing and decided to think about it himself.
