In this children’s cautionary tale for the twenty-first century, a small-minded king learns the value of diversity when he attempts to control his kingdom with a wall of stone. Visually compelling, the wall’s pop-up structure separates a rainbow of humorous thumbprint-shaped faces as they journey back and forth between now separate places. It’s a clever ebb and flow of colors and shapes that will have young readers, as well as the king, quickly seeing the errors of exclusionary ways.
