About this title


King Kenrick tries to ignore the painful splinter in his toe, but he finally agrees to have it tended to so he can lead the Hero's Parade

From School Library Journal:

Kindergarten-Grade 1?On the morning of the Hero's Day Parade, King Kenrick gets a painful splinter in his big toe. He says it will come out by itself, but the bossy queen insists that the cook's uncle take it out. First Uncle Archibald prepares his tools?pliers for holding the toe, an ice pick for finding the splinter, and a saw in case he "has to amputate." The actual removal is so fast that the king doesn't notice it. Later, when he leads the parade, he feels like "a brave hero himself." Unattractive illustrations accompany the story. Elaborately costumed people and comic-operetta backgrounds are painted in shining acrylics. The characters are unappealing?the pathetic, fearful king; the overbearing queen; and the flippant Uncle Archibald. Worst of all, the book's cover and most of the pages are bathed in an unpleasant orange-red glow. Children who fear this common procedure will not be soothed by this demeaning tale.?Nancy Seiner, The Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh
