Declaring himself the ruler of the playground, young Jonah receives everyone's promise to obey his rules except Lennox, who aspires to rule the playground herself, triggering a deadpan rivalry of playground politics. By the creator of Beyond the Pond. 50,000 first printing.


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.

& Taylor

When Jonah declares himself the ruler of the playground, Lennox takes a stand, aspiring to rule the playground herself.
