Tiny Tyrant: Volume One: The Ethelbertosaurusby Lewis Trondheim
Synopses & Reviews
The Tiny Tyrant returns: bigger and better than ever in our new, kid-friendly format.
Though he has a handful of advisors, this miniscule monarch is the one who calls the shots - demanding to see Santa Claus (to ask if he really has to eat a balanced diet), testing out his new bodyguard by putting a price on his own head, and replacing all the kids in the kingdom with robot doubles of his own royal self!
This rambunctious royals adventures were previously published in a smaller trim size, receiving great reviews and delighting children all over the US: now, Ethelbert is back, in a larger and more kid-friendly size. This single volume offers the first six stories from the original book - great reading for kids just getting into chapter books.
“A real treat for classic cartoon fans of many ages.” - Booklist
In Portocristo, anything six-year-old King Ethelbert says goes, no matter how bizarre or harebrained. He transports himself back in time to meet a dinosaur, swaps his country's kids for Ethelbert robots, tests his bodyguard's mettle by putting a price on his own head, and shrinks the world down to his size.
Welcome to Portocristo, its clear skies, sandy beaches, bustling streets--and its spoiled rotten, six-year-old king. The little despot is grouchy, whiny, outrageous...everything you'd hate to find in a boy on a throne. But here in Portocristo, anything he says goes, no matter how bizarre or harebrained. Sit back and watch young King Ethelbert swap his country's kids for Ethelbert robots, test his bodyguard's mettle by putting a price on his own head, shrink the world down to his size, bring a dinosaur back from the past...And that's only a tiny taste of the zaniness ahead. Trondheim's deliciously inventive writing, coupled with artwork evoking the classic, wacky styles of Mr. Magoo and Pink Panther, ensure an experience as memorable as kangaroos bouncing on pogo-sticks.
