A touching and clever story by award-winning, former Children’s Laureate Michael Morpurgo gives an imaginary insight into the childhood of the future Charles III.

Using the true story of Prince Charles’s unhappy years in school, Morpurgo weaves magic into it when the young Charles meets Alfred, a king from history, in the scene where he famously burns the cakes! Alfred has wise words about the role of a prince and future king that help the young Charles to feel happier about his life.

Michael Foreman’s beautiful illustrations add exactly the right timeless quality.
