When the royal couple and the mother of the devil hear a loud clamor from the (low) prison level of the castle, they don't even dear mention what they fear it to be; the Grimms are ordered to appease it, but can't read the only indication in the 'books saying everything about everything', so their plan -which the king immediately re-baptizes his own- is to pretend everything is all right until it is again. As this doesn't warn the youth, Kulderzipken and Princess Prieel investigate on their own, and she carelessly frees the Knoerifast (the name makes no sense in Dutch either) from his oubliette. He awakes only one day every seven years, but proves again to render people mad then; fortunately Kulderzipken figures out the book wasn't in a foreign language but just stressed by splitting every word in syllables, so he can make it: the smell of vegetable soup...
