9781842704684: The Conquerors

How can a country without an army conquer anyone? David McKee's profound story and delightful childlike pictures frame a quiet plea for peace. The ruling general of a dominant country conquered all his neighbors in order to rule as much as possible. This plan worked, until there was only one small jovial country left. When the soldiers went there to subjugate it, they were persuaded out of their uniforms, into the taverns, and onto the dance floors. However many times soldiers were sent home and replaced by new recruits, each one was suborned; and the returning military took back with them the traditions and music of the conquered nation. Just who has conquered whom?

From the Inside Flap:

An important new story about war and conquering nations from the creator of Not Now Bernard, and Elmer the Patchwork Elephant.

There was once a powerful country which decided to conquer all of its neighbours. This plan worked until there was just one small, jovial country left. When the soldiers went there to subjugate the people, they were persuaded out of their uniforms, into the taverns, and onto the dance floors. It didn?t matter how many times the soldiers were sent back home and replaced with new recruits, it was always the same story, and the returning military played the music of the conquered nation. Just who has conquered whom?
