Austrian Writer and German Illustrator Heinz Janisch, illustrated by Wolf Erlbruch The King and the Sea Gecko Press 2015  $19.99pb 48pp ISBN 978 1 9272 7180 3

Themes: Come-uppance/ Power/ Short (very short) stories

The King thinks he is all-powerful but in these very short stories he finds he has much to learn.

My favourite? 


‘Sit! Lie! Come! shouted the king “I am the king,’

‘Stop! Fetch! Heel!’ he bellowed.

Then he ran off after the dog.

Nice? They are all like this and great discussion starters and encouragements for children to create their own ‘stories’. The illustrations fit the mood of the book perfectly.  

Preschool up/ Age 4 up
