Staff Reviews

Jonah and Lennox both want to be rulers of the playground. However, the other kids aren't too thrilled with the "Rulers", especially Augustine and her dog, Sir Hamilton Humphrey. Lines are drawn, pinkie promises are made, and sides are taken in this delightful new picture book by Joseph Kuefler.

— Jen Steele


A stunning picture book about sharing, friendship, and kindness in a playground setting from Joseph Kuefler, the author/illustrator of Beyond the Pond. Perfect for fans of Jon Klassen and Oliver Jeffers.

One morning, Jonah decided to become ruler of the playground.

Everyone agreed to obey his rules to play in King Jonah's kingdom . . .

Everyone except for Lennox . . . because she wanted to rule the playground, too.

A gloriously rendered, hilariously deadpan tale of playground politics.
