Author: John Burningham
"Xinyi World Selected Picture Book: The Late King" was created by John Burningham, a child painter who won two Kate Greenwell Awards. "Xinyi World Selected Picture Book: Late King" elaborates humorously about the importance of "trust" between people. John Patrick McHennessy was walking to school, and there were so many incredible things on the way that he ended up being distracted and late. His teacher refused to believe him and asked him to write an essay 300 times as punishment!
The two roles of teacher and student in "Xinyi World Selected Picture Book: Late King" clearly conveys the interaction between the two humorous and vibrant characters. Starting from home, walking to school, and entering the classroom is a simplistic event that can sometimes bring about unexpected changes due to unimaginable conditions.
