Abstract:

One of Dr. Seuss's earliest works, The King's Stilts shows how important it is to both work hard and play hard. In the Kingdom of Binn, King Birtram works very hard, up at five every morning to ensure the kingdom is running smoothly. But at five o'clock in the afternoon, the workday ends and it's time to play . . . and in the case of King Birtram, that means racing around town on a pair of red stilts! But sour old Lord Droon doesn't think that this kind of fun is befitting Binn's king, and he steals the beloved stilts. Missing the stilts, King Birtram cannot have fun. In his sadness, the king doesn't notice that Binn is in danger: the Dike Trees that hold back the sea are being destroyed by the evil Nizzards. Can young Eric the page boy outsmart the dreary Droon and save the day?
