Storytime with Alex Beard

The author reads from "The Lying King" -Can warthogs fly? Do tigers eat tomatoes? For answers, follow along as Warthog lies his way to the throne in this timeless, yet most timely, Tale from the Watering Hole.

With his trademark style that’s been called “quirky and original” (Wall Street Journal) and “lush, invigorating” (New York Times Book Review), Alex Beard illuminates real world truths for children of all ages in The Lying King as the warthog lies his way to the top. With a nod to Aesop and Kipling, this funny and pointed parable has lessons for everyone about the importance of being honest, fair, and authentic.
