King Alice by Matthew Cordell
How does one follow up after an award-winning wordless book? Matthew Cordell ventures in a completely different direction, introducing readers to King Alice, a precocious girl who is filled with opinions, stories of her own creation, and ideas. Lots and lots of ideas. She does not want for words.
It's a snow day, which means that everyone in the household is homebound. For one regal young lady, its a day filled with possibilities: make-over for dad, tea party, writing a story, watching the TV show "Unicorn Buddies," creating a unicorn stampede.
Inevitably, Dad reaches his breaking point. The antics are too much. Alice is sent to time out. The King apologizes.
Dinner. Bath. Bedtime stories. Peace restored.
Dad and King Alice are the main attractions in this day's escapades, but a mother, infant, and cat have cameo roles.
