King Garnet Stories

The King Garnet Stories are tales about King Garnet told to us by author Marianne Parry and charmingly illustrated by David Hill.

The book is a collection of three stories about King Garnet, his lovely wife Queen Amanda and their good friend, a fellow King, King Grundle.

King Garnet loves all of the subjects who live within his Kingdom. Which is good, because all of his subjects love him, back!

But one morning, something isn't quite right... Something strange has happened! Because, overnight, King Garnet's legs had grown!

At first, King Garnet did not mind this one little bit! After all, who wouldn't want to be just that bit taller?

But soon poor King Garnet realised that his legs were continuing to grow, becoming longer and longer!

As the days pass by, they become so long that they were so long that they reached the bedroom door and then even went half way down the palace's grand staircase!

It soon became clear that someone had cast a spell on King Garnet to cause his legs to continue to grow longer and longer!

But who would even do such a thing to a king who was so well-loved by everyone in his kingdom?

And would his legs ever go back to their normal size?

You can also read about what happened when the King pretended he could not speak and when King Grundle was tricked into declaring war!

These stories are designed for children aged 5 to 7 and they are charmingly told and equally charmingly illustrated.
