The Wall in the Middle of the Book

The Wall in the Middle of the Book by Jon Agee is a stitch. A small knight lives on one side of the wall in fear of the ogre who lives on the other. The knight is grateful for the wall in the middle of the book until he is most definitely not. Oblivious to the literally rising perils on his side of the wall, he prattles on about how fortunate he is to live there. There is a lesson here but it is not heavy-handed. The illustrations are priceless, guaranteed to have readers laughing.
