The book: Beautiful child's tale that is as much an introduction to nature and natural phenomena as it is a story about a boy king and little princess. The boy's "kingdom" is the great outdoors and he travels his land discovering its wonders. He always looked for wonders he could carry back to his "Princess True", a little girl with blonde hair and blue eyes who never traveled from home herself.
