A delightful fable addressing the futility of war, perfect for early discussions of bullying and human rights

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 when the soldiers look around the battlefield for their war-happy king and find him nowhere in sight, the king's war doesn't work out quite the way he planned. Michel Streich's witty text and amusing illustrations make this a perfect picture book for parents and children to share. This engaging and thought-provoking story about conflict exposes the foolishness of war with a light touch.
