A beautiful book, one of my favorites as a child. The King is old & dying & must be told a story every night to keep his heart strong until the Wonder Doctor returns with a remedy.
The stories are wonderful and varied, some sad, some scary and some uplifting. The language is not too complex, (i'm reading it o my 6 year old) a book I highly recommend. ( )
