King Matt The First is a book for children based on a longer book. This book follows the story of a young boy that becomes king. Since he is so young there is a council that does most of the king duties. King Matt wants to go and play with the other kids in the park and be a normal kid, the council decides he is allowed to go to the park with the children. This ends shortly though because the council does not want other children laughing at King Matt. King Matt wants to have friends though, so he finds a way to make a friend. The boys meet secretly and decide to run off to join the war. The boys get to experience the war first hand when they sneak into the camp. Back at the palace, the council tries to find King Matt without letting the public know he is missing. King Matt is returned to the palace and they work together to set up a way for King Matt to work as king but still be a kid.
This is a cute book and the kids really liked it. This book is a quick read and has cute pictures. The pictures have a childish feel to them because of the artwork but it works with the story. I enjoyed reading this to the kids and learning that this was made from a longer book was interesting. The longer book is also called King Matt the First. I will leave a link for it if I can find it! Overall this is a fun book and I would recommend it to other parents for their kids!
