The Empty Pot
The Chinese emperor announces an unusual test to chose an heir: the child who cultivates the most beautiful plant from a seed he gives each of them will become emperor. Ping, a talented gardener, is persistent and tries everything he can think of to nurture his tiny seed, but he can't make it grow. When he arrives at the palace with his empty pot, all the other children have brought beautiful flowers in their pots. Ping is embarrassed to present his pot, but is greeted with a great surprise for being so honest and faithful.
