Story about king and lost stick pin results in upsetting whole castle, lesson in cause and effect.

I am looking for an old story about a king who loses his stick pin and makes everyone in the castle upset. First he yells at his wife, who yells at her lady-in-waiting, who yells at the chamber maid, and so on. Finally the king finds his pin, looks out his window and sees the cook beating the yard boy, and wonders why everyone is in such a bad mood on such a wonderful day. It is kind of a lesson in cause and effect. I would like to use it for my 3rd graders, but I can't find it anywhere. Help!
