I just adore these illustrations. I love the use of white space and the simple, geometric shapes the artist used to make up her pictures. Seriously cute!
The story is about Mr. King who cuts up the hill he lives on in order to build a big castle. Once the castle is finished, he realizes that he no longer has a view and that he ticked off all his friends. So he decides to put everything back.
I like the moral of this story; that you can't look out only for your own pleasure without some major consequences. I like the way Mr. King realizes his mistake and decides to make things right again, even at the expense of having a big castle to live in. This is a good book for children, to help them see that their actions affect more people than just themselves and that they might not always like the outcome of their choices.
