Item description for The Nothing King by Elle Van Lieshout, Erik Van Os & Paula Gerritsen...
A king gives up his royal lifestyle and discovers that having "nothing" is better than having everything. When King Bear moves out of the castle to the third floor of an apartment building, he quickly affirms that being king was not all that it was cracked up to be. He likes putting on his own cozy pajamas himself, without any servants to help. He finds he doesn't need a big fancy horse-drawn carriage. His pet rabbit is happier without a leash. All he needs is a small balcony, the sun, the sounds of the city, and a pot of pansies to tend. When the townsfolk begin laughing at what a nothing king he has become, he laughs back at their folly. He finally understands what's most important in life.
