Books
These 21 stunningly illustrated, ultra-short stories are seemingly simple but ultimately profound tales that will reverberate in the readers mind long after the book is put down. 'Buzz off,' said the king, shooing the bee from his flower. 'Dont you know Im the king?' 'And Im the queen,' said the bee, stinging the kings nose. In each story, the king has an encounter which he tries to rule over. But of course the rain doesnt stop just because a king orders it, and tired eyelids can be much stronger than a king's will. These encounters show the king that his power has limits; the world is diverse and much of it operates under its own rules.
