But then, one day, he married a VERY big princess! And soon, the king and queen had lots — and lots! — of children.
Now the castle was full of kids laughing and playing. Together the family had no trouble finishing all the delicious food. Everyone fitted nicely on the horse. And the bed turned out to be just the right size when everyone snuggled up side by side!
At its heart, this is a simple fairytale of lonely king meets beautiful princess and lives happily ever after. But what sets it apart are the bold, bright, geometric artworks that kids will absolutely love. It came as no surprise to learn that Taro Miura is an award-winning graphic designer as the collage-style illustrations make every page a feast for the eyes. A visual delight!
