Good Night, Your Majesty

Villemo Linngård Oksanen & Åshild Kanstad Johnsen

Once upon a time there was a very tiny king. So small in fact, that his crown fell down on his nose when he played football and he barely saw over the rim of the bowl when he baked muffins.

It’s late at night and the king can’t sleep. The town mayor, the priest, the maid, the doctor, the Chamberlain and Agnes the Knight attend to him in all ways imaginable. They bring him warm milk, they fetch his pink PJs with golden crowns on, they count sheep, read bedtime stories and chase away monsters from under the bed. Everybody does exactly what the king says. But he still can’t sleep. Finally, the castle’s smallest kitten pitter-patter through the bedroom door…

A funny and familiar picture book about a very small and determined king who can’t sleep. Set within a classic fairy tale backdrop, with a humorous twist and thrilling illustrations.
