His Royal Highness, King Baby

A Terrible True Story

by Sally Lloyd-Jones, illustrated by David Roberts

Once upon a time, there was a Happy Family: a mommy, a daddy, and the most beautiful, wonderful, kind, and gentle princess of a daughter.

But then one horrible day, a brand-new ruler is born. BEHOLD: His Terrible, Tiny Royal Highness King Baby!

He is SO smelly. He’s SO noisy. And ALL the talk in the Land is about him — NONSTOP, ALL THE TIME!

Has there ever been such a time of Wicked Rule? Will the princess live happily ever after?

Find out if this story, hilariously told from a big sister’s perspective, has a happy ending.
