Synopsis

Grumpy Little King by Michel Streich

The little king was always grumpy. 'I am fed up with being the little king of a tiny nation!' he shouted. 'I want to rule over an enormous country and be famous!'..So the little king decided to start a war. But it didn't quite work out the way he planned...Michel Streich's witty text and amusing illustrations make this a perfect picture book for parents and children to share.

Reviews

Streich's narrative carries you along and rapidly sketches a psychology of war so simple it makes young readers giggle and frown...Streich gives us meaty storytelling.
