Puggly, the newly crowned prince of the muddy (and very unfashionable) Kingdom of Spud, is surprised when he receives an invitation to a lavish ball in the oh-so-chic Kingdom of Spiff. The Spiffians are known for the poshest clothes and the fluffiest wigs, so of course Prince Puggly's effort at a grand entrance only ends in humiliation. However, Puggly discovers an unlikely ally in Francesca, the bookish Princess of Spiff. Not only do her Spiffian countrymen have no appreciation for her interest in Proust and Dickens, but they also can't tell a decent pair of pyjamas when they see them! But don't worry: Francesca and Puggly have one very good trick up their unfashionable sleeves, as they set out to teach the Spiffs an absurd lesson in style.
