What if a king thinks he owns everything in his kingdom, including the wild animals, birds, and even the clouds? Here is a timeless, beautifully illustrated tale about a young king who means well but acts impulsively and builds a wall to the clouds that nearly destroys the land he loves.
This story engages children of all ages as they watch how the king’s well-intended plans go terribly wrong. All are relieved when the king’s eyes are opened and he announces his plan to restore wholeness to the land. As one six-year-old said, “I like the way everything heals.”
