When King Normous and his soldiers attempt to conquer the King of Little Things and his tiny subjects, they discover that it is the little things that keep big things going.

Peachtree Pub Ltd
Only the King of Little Things stands between King Normous and his goal of conquering the world. And little things can wield great power.
In a world of vast kingdoms lives a king who is happy and content to reign over all things small. Not so King Normous. He wants to be Ruler of All the World. After having erased every empire and raided every realm, Normous is enraged to learn that the King of Little Things still rules over his tiny kingdom. He sends his army to defeat this upstart, but he finds he cannot outfight or outwit a king who holds sway over the small things of the world. After all, it is the small things that keep the big things going.
Bil Lepp’s imaginative tale of the beauty and importance of all things small is perfectly paired with illustrator David T. Wenzel’s bright watercolor paintings.

"When King Normous decides to become king of the whole world, the King of Little Things--and his subjects--must find a way to outsmart Normous and keep their little kingdom safe"--
Long ago in a faraway realm, the King of Little Things ruled happily over all things small--from buttons to beetles and marbles to macaroni. When King Normous thinks he has finally become the ruler of all the world, he is enraged to learn that the King of Little Things still reigns happily in his tiny kingdom. Normous sends his army to defeat this upstart, but he finds he cannot outfight or outwit a king who holds sway over the little things of the world. After all, it is the little things that keep the big things going.

Other than it simply listing things at times, which was boring, a very good book. A differnt fairy type tale that reminds of the stories from Has Christian Anderson. Very, very clever.

a wonderful story to start a discussion about of how important the little details are.
