The King of Quizzical Island - Gordon Snell, David McKee This book was such a great adventure tale, full of imagination, creativity, and a kind of surrealist beauty. My nephew loved the adventure, my niece loved the quest for knowledge (what is at the edge of the world? Is there even an edge at all?), and I loved the vocabulary, the creativity of the art and text, and the bravery of the king. Really a neat book to open up a conversation with kids about how inquisitiveness can lead to discovery and the expansion of human knowledge.
