Prince Puggly of Spud and the Kingdom of Spiff is the story of Puggly, a commoner chosen to be the prince (not the king, definitely not the king) of the rather unfashionable Kingdom of Spud.
The newly crowned prince is surprised when he receives an invite to a party in the nearby (and extremely chic) Kingdom of Spiff. When Puggly shows up in his plaid trousers and a polka-dot cape, the Spiffians are not amused.
But all is not lost! Puggly soon finds an unexpected ally in Francesca, the bookish Princess of Spiff. Together, the two friends set out to teach the Spiffs an absurd lesson in style.
