The King of Nothing

Author(s): Guridi; Saul Endor (Translator)

Sophisticated Picture Books

A smart and witty picture book about a king whose pride is challenged, by the renowned Spanish illustrator and children's author Guridi.

It is not nothing to be the king of nothing and the formidable king of nothing presides with proper pride over his kingdom of which nothing is known except that he is the king. He parades through his kingdom, and he oversees his kingdom, and he sets out to defend his kingdom--especially when, one day, out of the blue, the last thing he would ever have expected or wanted shows up within its borders- something.

What to do?

The King of Nothing is a sly and witty and entertaining parable about personhood and power, about always getting your way and not always getting your way, and getting on anyway. It is a playful book of first philosophy and fundamental psychology for kids, brilliantly executed and illustrated by Guridi, a renowned Spanish artist and author for children.
