This is my favorite so far. Maybe because it reminds me of "The King Who Rained."

I love "The King Who Reigned!" Fun fact about that book. It is a super-rare example of a celebrity illustrator. There are a bazillion celebrity-written picture books (and they are all terrible, every single one of them) but only one or two celebrity illustrators.

Who's the celebrity? Fred Gwynn, "Herman Munster" wrote and illustrated "The King Who Reigned." Pretty cool, huh? The only other celeb illustrator I know is Ricky Gervais. He is a trained illustrator. He's done a few books that are pretty funny.

I love Fred Gwynn's book "It's Easy to See Why." Hilarious!

Oh, I had no idea that was Herman Munster!

My son would love this book. And I agree with you about the celebrity authors. At least for the ones we've read so far.

This would make a very fun book. My girls (4 and 6) would find this hilarious.
