The King and the Sea

We rated this book:


The king looks funny and has a big tall crown. He likes to talk to all things, and likes to tell them that he’s the king. The sea answers with a “whoosh”. The cat shows him how the sun is much more important than the king himself, and the king understands and decides to lie down with the cat in the sun. The rain lets him know that his crown will rust, so the king decides that he might as well take a shower in the rain. The squirrel is not impressed with his headstand and handstand and runs really fast up to a tree. The dog does not do what the king wants him to. The cloud moves on while the king is still talking. The star disappears behind the darkness until the kings begs it to come back. The sky gives the king a blanket of snow when he asks for one. The sea provides him salt. The pencil writes for him. And when he gets at the shore, he sees other types of kings: the sky, the sun, the sea, a whale, a butterfly and a small crab. So, he decides that they all are kings and it is not important to wear a crown. So he puts his crown down on the sand and jumps in the water.

I really did not enjoy reading this book. It was way too long, with so many stories, and none of them was funny.
