The King of Tiny Things by Jeanne Willis, Gwen Millward


The King of Tiny Things by Jeanne Willis, Gwen Millward

When two little girls visit their grandparents, it seems like a brilliant idea to camp outside for the night. But then the dark comes and it doesn't seem such a good idea after all, until a most unexpected visitor arrives - the King of Tiny Things. He is the shepherd of creepy crawlies, bugs and grubs and shows the girls that, in fact, the night is bright with magic. This title comes from the creators of The Bog Baby , winner of the Booktrust Early Years Award 2008.

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.
