I’m the King of the Mountain

King of the mountain cover.

by Joy Cowley

illustrated by Dick Frizzell

In this lively, rhythmic text, suitable for sharing across all levels, a flea boasts that he is King of the Mountain, only to have the title snatched from him by a bigger, more threatening neighbour. The title is repeatedly relinquished as bigger, more intimidating animals come along, but the clever flea, using a little trickery, wins back the day. 

This title is also available as a NZ Sign Language e-book on  iTunes and  GooglePlay.
