A king, a queen and one very big princess... A witty, wonderful and warm-hearted prequel to The Tiny King by acclaimed picture book maker, Taro Miura. Once upon a time ... a king and queen discover, among their flowers, the teensiest, tiniest princess. Such a charming, sweet little thing! They are instantly taken with her - she becomes the daughter they never had, the child they had always dreamed of. The Queen immediately sets about finding her a perfect-sized bed and only a tiny ring box will do. But, in no time at all, the princess grows too big for her miniature bed. In fact, with each passing day, the princess grows bigger and bigger. Soon, she is taller than her parents, taller than her bedroom ... and the princess keeps growing until her head pokes through the top of even the tallest tower! Can the King figure out how to break the spell and save his beloved princess before his castle crumbles and falls?
This is not only a nice story but also an excellent example of illustration that isn't solely drawn and coloured pictures. Even the youngest of artists could try out the techniques Miura uses. -- The School Librarian * The School Librarian * The illustrations, using vibrant colours and simple shapes add to the wonderful sense of magic within the text. -- Carousel * Carousel * One of our all-time favourite bedtime reads is Taro Miura's The Tiny King. We've been waiting excitedly for the follow-up to come out and it definitely doesn't disappoint [...] The illustrations are just perfect and we always have to read it at least twice - generally the sign of a compelling story. * Bambino Goodies *商品の説明をすべて表示する
This is not so bad. But the child starts to grow. She grow so tall, she break through the castle wall. I got the creeps when the king saw something shiny in her belly button. Hello. She is a giant and he needs to climb her to get it out. What is going on here?
The rest of the book is self explanatory, well almost. She remains a giant but a smaller one.
I am totally confused. If she shrunk, why not all the way? Why did she not speak the whole book?
Basically the illustrations are great but I am not a lover of the text.
