The Wise Thin King | [Roger A. Sims]

The Wise Thin King

Someone must solve the riddle to a 1,000-year-old Tablet of Wisdom to become the kingdom's new ruler. Many desire to live in the royal castle and sit on the throne, but only one proves to be wise enough. The profits from The Wise Thin King will go to Kairso10, a nonprofit dedicated to ending the tragic effects of malaria in Ghana. Malaria is a mosquito-born virus that kills one in three children age five and younger in Ghana.
