A clever giant grasshopper lures a chef to cook and clean for him in this new children’s book released by Dog Ear Publishing. Little does the chef know how this move will change his life.

Dog Ear Publishing releases “Little Green King” by William Brown Jr.

The colorfully drawn insect characters, who act much like people, fire the imagination.

It’s not hard to imagine chef Carl Johnson’s surprise when he learns the new restaurant he will cook for is not real, but an ingenious attempt to trap him as chef for the town’s ruler who is a clever giant grasshopper known as the Green King. There’s only one rule in his town, which is to avoid cutting any greenery – or risk being attacked by the Green King’s army of insects and having your descendants punished as well.

Carl doesn’t want to stay but feels trapped by this situation. After a courageous man attempts to challenge the town’s law, the Green King retaliates with his army. Carl then realizes the Green King has to be stopped. He proposes a celebration to mark the insect’s great victory and orders a special dessert with a huge surprise in honor of the occasion.

“Little Green King” is a magical tale aimed at showing children that reading books can be fun, as well as imparting a lesson about living in harmony with nature. The colorfully drawn insect characters, who act much like people, fire the imagination and bring this message home.

This is the second book for William Brown Jr., who also wrote “Jimmy’s Alphabet Garden.” Prior to writing children’s books, the professional artist was the creator of two nationally published comic strips.
