Prince Bertram the Bad

Written and illustrated by Arnold Lobel

Published by Henry Holt and Co (BYR)

Publisher's Summary

Once upon a time a prince was born. The kingdom was excited and proud. But Prince Betram was not a good boy. He put spiders in the soup, pulled up the roses in the royal garden, and broke all of his toys. As each year passed, he grew meaner and naughtier . . . until one day, a witch cast a spell on Bertram to punish his bad behavior. Can Bertram learn to be kind and break the curse?

This timeless fable perfectly embodies the golden rule: always treat others the way you would like to be treated. The child-friendly illustrations, complete with the detailed, cross-hatching lines, reveal Lobel's great talent as an artist and a master storyteller. Arnold's daughter and renowned theater designer, Adriane Lobel, wrote an introductory note to celebrate the return of this charming tale.
