Marigold And The Snoring King
This cute book by J.D. Remple reminds me of the classic stories I used to hear when I was a kid. It has the typical three act structure with the first thing not working, the second thing not working, and the third succeeding.
But in this book the one trying the three things isn’t the main character. It’s the king, who snores so loudly he keeps the entire kingdom awake at night and can’t stop.
The real main character is Marigold, who has a solution for the problem, but isn’t allowed to share it until the climax. And she does solve the problem, but I won’t give away the secret of what she does.
J.D. Remple has done a great job of telling a story kids will love and the illustrations by Kim Sponaugle show the characters and story perfectly.
Marigold And The Snoring King is a book kids will love to have read to them at bedtime again and again.
