Lepp, Bil The King of Little Things Illustrated by David T. Wenzel Peachtree, 2013. $16.95 PICTURE BOOK Content: G.
There is a king who rules over the small things of this world. He doesn’t care to have the big extravagant things that kings normally have. Then there is a king who likes to have beg things and he takes all the kingdoms in all the land so he can have the biggest kingdom. He has the biggest army and when he learns that the King of Little Things is still in his kingdom he tries to lock him up. The little things start causing havoc throughout the land until the people insist that King Normous let the King of Little Things go.
This is a book about not taking little things for granted. Sometimes bigger seems better, but we need to look around us and appreciate the little parts that make the whole. The illustrations are detailed and there is an I Spy element to the book.
