King Alice








Matthew Cordell celebrates books and reading in this picture book about a girl and her father who make up an epic adventure in which she is king!

What is there to do on a snow day when the whole family is stuck indoors? Write a book, that’s what! 

Alice does just that, and makes herself the king of her story. Best of all, the story lasts till the lights go out at bedtime. 

Matthew Cordell, author and illustrator of the Caldecott award-winning book Wolf in the Snow, celebrates reading and the imaginative way one family handles being housebound. Whether it's a snow day, a sick day, or simply a day that no one can organize going out, families with young children will relish and relate to this charming picture book.


Matthew Cordell is the author and illustrator of Wolf in the Snow, winner of the Caldecott Medal, Trouble Gum, Another Brother, hello! hello!, and Wish. He has illustrated the books of renowned authors including Philip Stead (Special Delivery), Rachel Vail (the Justin Case series), and Gail Carson Levine (Forgive Me, I Meant To Do It). He lives outside of Chicago with his wife, the novelist Julie Halpern, and their two children.
