Description
Nominated for the 2011 Kate Greenaway Medal, a brand new picture book from beloved children's author David McKee about being content with one's life
Denver is rich--very, very rich, and everyone in the village loves him for his kindness and generosity. But one day a stranger arrives, who breeds discontent by telling the villagers it isn't fair for Denver to have so much more than they do. When Denver hears what has happened, he divides his money equally between everyone. He moves to a new village, where he lives happily and is better appreciated, but for the old villagers life just is not the same without him.
