This witty folktale about a king with a secret is retold by an acclaimed storyteller. King Mark has a secret: he has horse's ears. No one knows about it except his barber, who could lose his head if he tells. But knowing the secret makes the barber ill, so his doctor advises him to tell his secret to the ground. The secret then grows into reeds, the reeds are made into pipes - and what happens next will surprise and amuse young readers. The story of King Mark and his ears is told with lively humor by professional storyteller Eric Maddern, and Paul Hess's delightfully droll artwork adds to the fun.
