The Wall: A Timeless Tale by Macri and Zanotti - ESSENTIAL



The king is upset because there are so many different people in his kingdom – why don’t they all look like him?  They try t sort out his people, but he has to bring a few of them back to build the wall he sees as a final solution.  But after the wall, he wants a garden, and then a fountain, and so on, until he realizes he needs more space and that the wall is in the way and it must come down.

Adults will find this a fine poke at extreme nationalism, but children will easily realize how silly it is to only want people around you who look exactly like you. A great discussion starter.
