The author provides simple and sweet drawings to illustrate this simple and sweet story. Originally written and illustrated in 1963, this wonderfully imaginative story features pen-and ink-drawings with limited colorings of red, green, black and white. The story concerns a young boy who has the whole world in his room. He has his private sun, private moon and private stars. He has lots of imaginary toy friends, such as his train and his puppet, but his special Prince Bear is missing. Of course at the end, the two are re-united, and Prince Bear is crowned King Bear. The two then share the whole world together. This wonderfully fun and heartwarming story makes a good read-aloud. 2003 (orig. 1963), Sunburst Book/Farrar Straus Giroux, Ages 3 to 5.
