When the old king dies, a Duke and Earl find themselves in competition for the Kingdom. Their vanity and greed see them locked in a futile battle, which impacts the lives of the people who live in the Kingdom. But what do the people want? And will anyone listen? In this moralistic tale about the dangers of vanity and power-hungry leaders, Emma Lewis’s distinctive collage style—inspired by the famous Bayeux Tapestry—lends a unique approach to a contemporary folktale.
