Gold by David Shannon

From the multiple award winning author of No, David and Too Many Toys comes the book Gold. Just like King Midas, Maximilian Midas had an insatiable love for gold. In fact “gold” was the first word Max spoke! Max didn’t turn things to gold by touch, he found ways to make money and then turn that into gold. His greed got the best of him and when he chose to eat some gold he suffered severe consequences. By the end of the story Max learned that things he took for granted are actually worth much more than gold. He was able to right his wrongs and take to heart “Gold can never make you feel as good as being nice”. Through very readable rhyming text and animated oil paintings this book is sure to please both children and adults.
