Abrams Books for Young Readers,
Pub. Date:
Among the ruins of Angkor Wat, Tiger, Monkey, Water Buffalo, and Gecko argue over who would make the greatest king. An ancient elephant suggests a race to the top of the hill to prove each creature's speed, strength, and cunning. But along the way, their strengths and weaknesses are revealed. Will any of them be good enough to be king? Graeme Base's luscious illustrations of the Cambodian temple complex Angkor Wat--one of the most beautiful ruins in existence and known to people all over the world--are combined with a search-and-find feature in this exciting new tale! A brief history of the temple is included. Praise for The Last King of Angkor Wat "This simple morality tale is lifted to loveliness by Base's gorgeous digital illustrations, majestic and richly colored, filled with characteristic detail and intricately bordered. These pages beckon readers to return again and again to pore over the details." -- Kirkus Reviews
