Description

The Conquerors

The general of a large and mighty country invades and conquers each of its neighboring countries, one by one. Eventually, all the countries in the world are conquered but oneand that one is so small it doesn't not even have an army. And so, of course, when the day comes that the general is unable to resist invading the small country, the outcome is inevitable. Or is it?

David McKee's profound story and delightful childlike pictures send a special message that is all the more effective for framing a quiet plea for peace.
