Ages 4 – 8
Celebrate the publication of the wonderful new picture book, The Paper Kingdom! Written by Helena Ku Rhee, The Paper Kingdom expresses the joy and spirit of a loving family who turn a routine and ordinary experience into something much grander. Magical art by Pascal Campion shows both the real world and the fantasy through the eyes of the young narrator. When the babysitter is unable to come, Daniel is woken out of bed and joins his parents as they head downtown for their jobs as nighttime office cleaners. But the story is about more than brooms, mops, and vacuums. Mama and Papa turn the deserted office building into a magnificent kingdom filled with paper, dragons, and a king. From the Kirkus starred review: "A beautiful, must-read tribute to hardworking families and the magic they create."
