The requirement is only to tell the story and follow a rhyme scheme. There is no mention of syllabic count or metre so I would think you were not restricted inasmuch as they are concerned.
Delightfully told in rhyming verse, this story features a young hero (Sophie) who encourages a self-conscious king to show himself even though he is different. Sensitive and silly, this vibrantly illustrated tale will show readers that when we embrace diversity and difference, we open up a world of friendship and possibilities.
