What's This Book About

Publisher Summary

One evening, when the King is in a hurry, his goodnight kiss to the Little Prince goes astray. After rattling around the Prince’s bedroom, it flies out the window and floats into the dark forest, where it has no business to be. The King decides to do something about it. He orders the Knight to climb on his horse, ride into the forest, and bring back the kiss. But the forest is filled with spooky things that frighten both the Knight and his horse. How will they ever succeed in bringing the kiss back to the castle? This funny story features Daivd Melling’s atmospheric and richly colored illustrations on every page. It makes a great bedtime story for kids who are about the same age as the Little Prince.
