One Monday Morning

Uri Shulevitz. Aladdin Paperbacks, $4.95 (44pp) ISBN 978-0-689-71062-9

A queen and a prince come to visit a small boy one Monday morning, but as he tells readers, ""I wasn't home.'' They return with the king on Tuesday, but ``I wasn't home.'' Every day they check to see if the little boy is in, always with someone new in tow, until Sunday, when they come with a king, a knight, a royal guard, cook, barber, jester and a little dog. This time, the little boy is home to entertain his royal guests. (4-8)
