From the creators of the adored There Once is a Queen comes another exquisitely presented royal tale for little ones, this time chronicling the life and times of King Charles III.
A beautifully illustrated full-colour tribute to King Charles III, published to mark his coronation.
There once was a boy who was going to be king one day...
From the Nation's Favourite Storyteller Sir Michael Morpurgo comes a poetic celebration of our new monarch, King Charles III, beautifully illustrated in watercolour by acclaimed artist Michael Foreman.
There once was a little boy, born a prince. Encouraged by his parents, he grew up with a passion for the countryside, wanting to look after it. Then, as the longest-serving Prince of Wales in British history, he dedicated decades of his life to raising awareness for conservation. Now our king, his devoted work will continue to inspire the protection of our planet for future generations.
This allegorical story tells how - with the help of a tiny acorn - a wise old woman gives a lonely boy, who would be king, the courage and determination to change the world for the better, for everyone. An exquisite companion to There Once is a Queen, this commemoration of King Charles III's coronation is a gift book truly to be treasured.
