Beatrice Schenk de Regneirs' Caldecott-winning classic children's book from 1964 features a remarkably patient and benevolent king and queen who indulge a young boy's wish by allowing him to invite guests of his choosing to their palace, but little do they know that he has friends of all species.
The narrator captures the whimsical, almost musical rhythm of de Regniers' buoyant and humorous tale illustrating the importance of acceptance that is, along with Albert Hague's regal musical score, guaranteed to spark the imagination of children of all ages.
