Review: 'The King of Little Things' by Bil Lepp

The King of Little Things by Bil Lepp, Illustrated by David T. Wenzel, 2013, Peachtree, $16.95, hardbound, 31 pages. Category/Genre: faery tale. Cover: interesting. Where we got it: publisher. Where you can get it: Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Books-A-Million.

In his land on the far side of a mountain lived the King of Little Things. He was the only king who was satisfied with what he had. Other kings -- big kings -- wanted more. Worst of all was King Normous, who wanted all. 

One day, when King Normous had all but the land of the King of Little Things, he decided to get that, too. And that's where things got interesting. 

Once you read this book, you'll realise just how much power little things have. Because little things don't just exist to serve big things; they can do things all on their own. There's also a little (pun intended) game to play at the end, in which the reader may try and find all the little things pictured in the back and front flaps of the book. 

A whimsical tale about the might of the small.
