for King Alice by Matthew Cordell
Matthew Cordell, Caldecott Medal-winning author and illustrator of Wolf in the Snow, delivers yet another warm and delightful picture book in King Alice.
Alice and her family are stuck indoors on a snowy day. Alice loves to read, and when her dad suggests that she make her own book, she snaps out of her "I'm bored" mode and makes up a story that lasts till the lights go out later that night.
Here is a book that celebrates books, reading, and an imaginative way that one family handles being housebound.
Praise for Matthew Cordell
“Beautifully paced . . . ultimately reassuring.” —Wall Street Journal on Wolf in the Snow
“Shows the power of kindness and bravery. Reminiscent of William Steig's Brave Irene, Cordell's book is a perfect choice for the dark days of winter.” —IndieBound on Wolf in the Snow
