THE BAREFOOT KING

THE BAREFOOT KING

赤腳國王

In the Barefoot Kingdom, everyone – from newborn babies to white-haired old men, from commoners to royalty – goes barefoot all the time. And while it’s lovely when you’re bathing your feet in a stream or treading on lush grass, walking on sharp rocks and sun-baked roads can be excruciating! The king takes it for granted that everyone should go barefoot while he’s walking on soft carpets, riding in carriages, or on horses. But one day, when his rickshaw driver gets injured and the king has to carry him down a muddy road, he realizes the truth, and gets a new idea…

 

The illustrator takes us on a barefooted journey through seasons and climes, luxury and difficulty, and makes us think twice about the shoes we so often take for granted.
