Description - King Hugo's Huge Ego by Van Dusen Chris

From a master of visual comedy comes the royally satisfying tale of a head swollen out of proportion and a blowhard brought down to earth.

Hugo is a tiny king with a very large ego. But when he mistreats a villager who also happens to be a sorceress, the spell she casts causes his head to literally swell. The more he boasts, the bigger it gets, until it finally topples the mini monarch right off his castle! Who will cut this royal pain down to size? And, more important, will anyone live happily ever after? Chris Van Dusen's hilarious story is matched only by his outrageous illustrations. Together, they make for a picture book that is sometimes fairy tale, sometimes cautionary tale, and always laugh-out-loud funny.

Book Review: King Hugo's Huge Ego by Van Dusen Chris - Reviewed by (02 Jun 2013)

King Hugo's Huge Ego is an excellent children's story book and is equally as much fun for the adult to read as well as the child to listen to.

The story is about King Hugo who a bit of a big Ego. He would often rant and rave about who great he was. The one day he came across a young lady who put a curse on him which made his head grow whenever he would boast.

The book is fun to read as it flows brilliantly with rhyming paragraphs. The illustrations are colorful and detailed, recommended book.
