The King and the Sea
21 Extremely Short StoriesBook - 2015
These stunningly illustrated, ultra-short stories are seemingly simple but ultimately profound tales. "Buzz off," said the king, shooing the bee from his flower. "Don't you know I'm the king?" "And I'm the queen," said the bee, stinging the king's nose. In each story, the king has an encounter which he tries to rule over. But of course the rain doesn't stop just because a king orders it, and tired eyelids can be much stronger than a king's will. The king sees that his power has limits; the world is diverse and much of it operates under its own rules. "An extraordinarily beautiful children's book that leaves plenty of room for your own thoughts a It deals with big questions in a small way."-Litrix.de (German Literature Online)
