Caldecott winner 1965

I like how the mostly monochromatic pages were in contrast with the indulgent idea of a simple boy having dinner with a king, queen, and zoo animals.

Favorite line:
"And we want you to know," / Said the Queen and King / "You can bring any friends / You would like to bring."
--The Queen and King pre-empted the boy asking (again) if he could bring a friend to eat!
