May I See the King?

I was so glad to receive this book in the mail yesterday! It's by a new team of picture book authors, Vince and Julie Daubenspeck. This is a beautifully rendered take on the age old Humpty Dumpty story but with a twist that is sure to touch your heart as well as the heart of a child. The bright vivid images of Mark Pendergrass goes along perfectly with the whimsical tale. The Daubenspecks do a fabulous job of using words sparingly with a large amount of impact. The meter is perfect: "But Humpty Dumpty prayed a great thing. He humbly asked, 'May I see the king?' "

I'm so thankful to have this treasure of a book in my library!!!
