  • This picture book explores power, rivalry, and the escalation of violence with a great deal of humour…


    From the top of a tower, a king pulls a silly face at his sworn enemy. Offended, the latter responds by pulling down his royal pants. How rude! This time, it’s war!


    But when one drop of blood is shed, both kings are shocked - they have gone too far! They will never fight again… until the next time someone pulls a silly face!


    Published in partnership with Amnesty International France.
