The King with Horse's Ears Paperback
by Eric Maddern
Illustrated by Paul Hess
King Mark has a secret: he has horse's ears. No one knows about it except his barber, who is sworn not to tell, on pain of losing his head.
But the secret eats away at the barber until he has to tell his doctor - and the doctor advises him to tell his secret to the ground.
So the secret grows into reeds, the reeds are made into pipes - and eventually the king has to admit his secret...How King Mark learns to live with his ears is told with good humour by professional storyteller Eric Maddern with delightfully droll artwork by Paul Hess.
