Based on a classic story from Greece, the story is told of a rich and greedy king who wanted to prove he was the happiest man in the world because of his great wealth. A wise Greek man puts things in perspective and the king, eventually, learns some things about true happiness.
Cute illustrations. Historic notes in the back give some context for the story. Good message about the path to true happiness (sharing/helping others, contentment). This is definitely more of a "message" story than a "get lost in the story" sort of book.
