One day, a small boy receives a very special invitation—the King and the Queen have invited him to the castle for tea. He accepts, with one question: “May I bring a friend?” “Any friend of our friend is welcome here,” says the King. But their guest’s friend turns out to be someone they never expected!
The rhythmic text and fantastical, jewel-like artwork of this classic book have made it a favorite for more than twenty-five years.
