This is one of my favorite books The King of Little Things.
It’s preciousness is in its telling. From buttons to beetles to marbles and macaroni, you cannot outwit a king or queen who holds sway with little things, for it is the little things that keep the big things going.
Plus. The illustrations are irresistibly charming.
