Excerpt: King & King

On the tallest mountain above the town lived a queen,
the young crown prince,
and the crown kitty.

The queen had ruled for many long years and she was tired of it.
She made up her mind that the prince would marry
and become king before
the end of the summer.

“Wake up!”
called the queen.

“We’re going to have a little talk, you and I.”
