Among the ruins of beautiful Angkor Wat, Tiger, Monkey, Water Buffalo and Gecko argue over who would make the greatest king. They decide to race to the top of the hill, each hoping to prove they are most worthy. But along the way their strengths and weaknesses are revealed.

Will any of them be good enough to be King?

The luscious illustrations of Graeme Base are emphasised in his artwork of Angkor Wat, one of the most beautiful ruins known to people all over the world.


Huge GBase Fan


As a fan of Base, the illustrations are his usual standard of BEAUTIFUL! The story is charming. I do however miss the 'mystery' factor from the book. There's no hidden item to find or mystery to solve.


Graeme Base - what's not to love ?


Gift for younger grandchildren - they love 'em.



For all children and big children


This book should be on the shelf of every home. It can be read as a bed time story, learning to read, a moral and hero journey. The pictures are a delight as are all of Graeme Base books. All his books should be on your shelf as they are on mine.
