Mr. King likes new things. When his stuff gets the slightest bit old, he just tosses it into the pond. But when a pond monster frightens Mr. King, he must think of new ways to deal with old messes -- with delightful results!

Mr. King is a kitty cat who loves to get new stuff. Don't we all? But he's even worse than us Americans because once his things become 'the tiniest bit old,' he throws them into a pond. What follows is a pretty hilarious tale about how he ends up getting everything back. His adorable little friends get involved and help him see the value in his stuff, and the silliness of discontentment is conveyed in a delightful manner. Bright, quirky drawings add to the mix for an all-around great picture book.
