King Crumb likes being king. He paints his castle lots of different colours, bathes in raspberry lemonade and has a puppet theatre perform for him. No wonder he really couldn’t be bothered fighting when the wild boys enter his kingdom. So the little king starts by inviting the wild boys to visit him in his castle and entertains them with cocoa, chocolate gateau, strawberry cake and almond rings. Will that be enough to stop them from fighting, though? A charming story about how to avoid trouble – with cheerful, brightly coloured illustrations.
