(Photograph omitted)

'There was not one morsel in the whole kingdom that the King had not tasted', from King Glutton by Jindra Capek (Andersen Press pounds 7.99). A wicked monarch starves his people to stuff himself, but redemption comes, in graceful flat perspectives, from a poor boy and plain food.
