Only the King of Little Things stands between King Normous and his goal of conquering the world in this lively, humorous fable about bullies and power.
★ "Adults and children who read this delightful and imaginative book together will find lots to talk about." ―Kirkus Reviews, STARRED REVIEW
"Endearing and satisfying." ―The Wall Street Journal
In a world of vast kingdoms lives a king who is happy and content to reign over all things small. Not so King Normous. He wants to be Ruler of All the World.
After having erased every empire and raided every realm, Normous is enraged to learn that the King of Little Things still rules over his tiny kingdom. He sends his army to defeat this upstart, but he finds he cannot outfight or outwit a king who holds sway over the small things of the world. After all, it is the small things that keep the big things going.
Nationally renowned storyteller Bil Lepp celebrates the beauty of all things small as a domineering bully is brought down to size. His witty story, full of wordplay and alliteration, pairs beautifully with David T. Wenzel's charming watercolor paintings that evoke medieval imagery and amusing details.
