1968 Children's Hardcover Book, The King With Six Friends, Jay Williams, Fiction, Illustrated, Fiction, Classic
A wonderful children's hardcover book called The King With Six Friends by Jay Williams. This book's theme is based on friendship. The book is magically illustrated by Imero Gobbato.
There are many nice things about being a king. But there is one very bad thing. It's hard to find a job if you're out of work. All that a king can do is rule, and if you have no kingdom then you are out of work. That's what happened to young King Zar. He was a good king, but young and without much experience. A bold, strong king with many soldiers had attacked his kingdom. Young Zar found himself with no country, with no palace or house or hut. Zar had twelve gold pieces, a suit of clothes and a sword. So he set out to find work. The road was long and the world was wide. In Zar's search for a kingdom, he met six unusual friends along the way.
