Staff Reviews

In this rollicking journey through a wild wet night, it is all about the rhythm of the rhymes. My daughter loved this book before she could even understand it, just to hear the lilting rocking of the words. These are equally matched by the wonderful joyful colors of the pictures. 

— Lee Miller


Where those kings are headed is a mystery, but no travelers ever had such a jolly time. Here is a royal romp through a tongue-twisting paradise.
