If I Were King – Written and Illustrated by Randa Handler


A wonderful story with an important message.

If I Were King

 Deep in a beautiful jungle, six very different animal friends meet. Elephant, Lion, Leopard, Giraffe and Monkey are bored, but not Zebra, she is determined to have fun and starts a game ‘If I were king.’ At first, it seems harmless, but soon, the animals’ very different characters and traits begin to show.

Within the story are important messages. The reader has a wonderful opportunity to interact with the child as it learns about not only the different characteristics and traits of some wild animals, but also important life lessons such as self-awareness, understanding others and character judgement, in an easily absorbable way.

This very talented author and illustrator has produced a lovely, colourfully illustrated book which I believe will really appeal to children.

    This book looks interesting and I love the cover. Good luck on your venture. I have just written my first children’s book called My Momma Comes Back at the age of 74 as a great grandma. Never too late to live the dream!

    My book is about love and trust and addresses the anxiety that children and parents feel when leaving a child in the care of others. It is a hard cover book with an audio book included. It has an original song and beautiful illustrations.

    Check out my website or like me on FB under the book title.
