Rebecca and Kylie Hilton offer an entertaining, insight-filled book for the young. Titled The Adventures of King Whizzer, kids will have no trouble understanding and appreciating this altogether amusing and lighthearted story. Easy-to-follow, succinct lines on top of vivid and whimsical pages make for a productive reading experience for children.

A long time ago, before human beings populated the world, the planet was under the rule of kingdoms aplenty. Among the empires that stood out were that of canines, felines and wingless insects known as fleas. In the great castle of King Whizzer, the noblest dog, lived his beautiful wife, Queen Ladie, and their children, Princess Millie, Leo the Duke of Naughtiness, Bella the Duchess of Anger, and, last but no means least, Charlie the Lady of Little.

For a considerable period of time, the citizenry of Pooch Palace lived in tranquility, despite the King’s long dispute with Thomas and the kingdom of cats. But when Phillipe the Prince of Fleas solicits assistance from King Whizzer to help defend his people from the threat of cats to drive them away from their village, which the virtuous King grants wholeheartedly to him and his constituents, a catastrophe is set off by Leo the Duke of Naughtiness. What did the Duke do this time that enraged the flea community, now organizing an attack to their palace?

Follow the Royal Family of Pooch Palace as they deal with an impending threat from an ally-turned-foe. The Adventures of King Whizzer is a purposeful pastime that engages kids’ imaginations to higher limits on the road to creativity and ingenuity.

This book will be featured at the 2013 American Library Association Annual Book Exhibit in Chicago, Illinois on June 29-July 1, 2013.
