Youth Services Book Recommendation: Tiny Tyrant

Tiny Tyrant *Click here to request this book* Tiny Tyrant, by Lewis Trondheim and Fabrice Parme
[Graphic Novel] What if the most powerful person in your nation was a spoiled brat? Although King Ethelbert of Portocristo is only six, he gets to boss around an entire nation! Whether he's trying to test his new bodyguard (by taking out a contract on himself), trying to dig up a dinosaur fossil he can name the Ethelbertosaurus (by having scientists create a huge dinosaur and then going back in time to drop it off in a lava flow), creating an army of robot Ethelberts (to replace all of Portocristo's inferior children), or shrinking things with the Minimatic (because everything is annoyingly sized for adults), Ethelbert's misguided adventures will have you laughing out loud!
