Only the King of Little Things stands between King Normous and his goal of conquering the world. But little things can make a big difference! A beautifully illustrated children’s book with a lesson for readers of all ages. 


“Adults and children who read this delightful and imaginative book together will find lots to talk about.” — Kirkus Starred Review


“It’s hard to miss the point of this fable about the kindly King of Little Things…  Small, Lepp clearly feels, is beautiful. Yet the story doesn’t pall. Wenzel delivers Mad magazine–style spreads of medieval feasts, battles, capes, and crowns. Brainy wordplay abounds, and a scavenger hunt is included, too. Lepp affirms living simply without sounding smarmy, and Wenzel offers a king whose underpants fall off. What’s not to like?” — Publisher’s Weekly

The Reviews Are In!

The Wall Street Journal:  “Bil Lepp writes with cheery alliteration…No points for guessing which king prevails in this endearing and satisfying picture book for readers ages 5-10.”
Publishers Weekly Review
School Library Journal: “There are plenty of humorous details… The witty writing enlivens this fable about appreciating the small things in life.”
The Charleston Gazette: Book Review by Sarah Sullivan, award winning children’s book author.

The King of Little things has become quite the BIG thing.
