2021 INTERNATIONAL BOOK AWARD FINALIST


Wonder and imagination are at the heart of this story of a friendship between a boy from New York City and the boy king, Tutankhamun


A boy and his stuffed bunny gaze at a star-lit New York cityscape. The great Sphinx of Egypt sleeps. A child swings joyously across a river. This book offers a tantalizing glimpse of the adventures of Arthur and his imaginary friend, Bun-Bun. Together they travel through the Temple of Dendur at the Metropolitan Museum to another time and place and befriend the lonely boy king, Tutankhamun.

George H. Lewis is a British-born painter, healer, and artist. His paintings have been hung in museums and galleries around the world. The Boy and the Boy King, which he illustrated and co-wrote, is his first book to be published. George hails from Cornwall, England and now lives in New York City.

A.D. Lubow loves creativity and working for just causes. In addition to stories, he writes songs and makes videos. He works in New York City to help to change the world for the good. The Boy and the Boy King is his first picture book.

Reviews

"Author/narrator George H. Lewis deftly introduces Arthur, who lives in New York City. He and his stuffed rabbit, Bun-Bun, are visiting the Metropolitan Museum of Art's Temple of Dendur. Listeners join the pair as they enter a portal that takes them to meet King Tutankhamun (Tut) in Egypt. The highbrow English accent Lewis gives Bun-Bun matches Tut's regal confidence, while Arthur speaks like a typical American teen. Sounding astute, Bun-Bun encourages Tut to strive for peace, not war--as his advisors desire. Pragmatic Arthur encourages Tut to flee. Eventually, Arthur longs for home, but Bun-Bun realizes he must remain to continue guiding Tut. Along with a magical and poetic story, listeners are treated to a tour of ancient Egypt."—AudioFile
