Once upon a time there was a Silly Little King who would eat nothing but his favorite food. One day, when his favorite food was not available, he decided that he would rather go hungry than eat something else, but “his tummy got depressed.” He finally tried some new foods and discovered they were “oh so good.” Now: He’s healthy as can be, because he eats all kinds of food just like you and me.

The story is beautiful. I would like more if the book had narrations.
