Peter Jones – The Beggar King

Illustrated by Andrea Nick-Vékony

The Beggar King is about a rich king who wants a change in his life. He dresses up as a beggar and goes to the very end of his kingdom where he has only been when he was a child.  Nobody recognizes him and no one believes that he is the true king. Only a little boy believes that he is the king.  This book is filled with wisdom and teaches us how to listen to our inner hearts.

A long time ago in a land far awayLived an unhappy King with little to say
He was rich, he was wise and had a strong heart
He wanted a change, a brand new start
He dressed as a beggar to escape his Kingdom
To try to teach others, those who would listen
Nobody believed him, they thought him a clown
But he was the only true King around
Until one day a little boy came along
Who heard his story and liked his song
He was the only one who believed in the King
Dressed as a beggar and his fake looking ring.
