Synopsis

King Midas by Kathleen Olmstead

This is a beautifully illustrated addition to the popular Silver Penny series. It teaches children about what is truly valuable. It is suitable for children aged 3 to 6. Although King Midas is a kind man, he always wants more: more jewels, more silver, more gold. So when he's granted a wish for doing a good deed, he asks that everything he touches turn to gold. But after his flowers, his food and even his daughter are transformed, he learns what is truly valuable.
