Written by Harris Tobias, Illustrated by Cathy Reene
The King’s Dream: A Fairy Tale reminds me of the fairy tales I read as a child. It is the classic story of a king out of touch with his subjects who learns humility and kindness. But how he comes to that conclusion is a new twist. Mr. Tobias adds a layer to the story that sends a beautiful and important message about the power of dreams. Ms. Reene’s illustrations are stunning. My only regret is that I could not find the book in hardcover. I purchased it as a holiday gift for my grandson anyway. This book will be enjoyed in any format – digital or softcover. (I bought the print version.)
(Disclosure: Mr. Tobias entered "The King's Dream: A Fairy Tale" into The Gittle List: Top 10 Indie Children's Picture Books of 2014 contest. There was no entry fee and I was under no obligation to review it.)
While I think this is best suited for boys because a majority of the characters are male, the message of the story is suitable for both boys and girls. Thus, I recommend this book to anyone who is looking for a good story to read to a child that also has illustrations that will impress the child's imagination.
