A young Emperor welcomes the six kings who rule his kingdom. Each king will bring a gift, and the Emperor needs to decide what to give in return. Simple illustrations executed in a muted color palette accompany the text. The story proceeds in a linear fashion, and children will love the fact that the Emperor is visually presented in a childlike manner while the kings are depicted as adults. The childlike Emperor rules over the adult kings! Each king carries with him an exaggerated character flaw that the Emperor is forced to deal with. This book would make a nice addition to an elementary school library, and would work well as a bedtime story. ( )
