KIRKUS REVIEW

Most of the humor is in the unaccompanied pictures--and unaccompanied pictures are not the usual choice of children old enough to enjoy the joke. "Make me laugh, Fool, or I shall banish thee!" the very sad King threatens the very dejected Jester. 'Delving' into his bag of tricks, the Jester finds a mirror. . . and the King makes faces until he's making whoopee. . . and playing the Fool himself. While the other, putting on tile discarded crown, sits glumly on the throne. . . and banishes the quondam King. . . until proffered the mirror he perks up. . . "And they lived with love and laughter/ forever after." Funny enough if you'll settle for a story in facial expressions.
