The King's Stilts Meaning

What is this book really about?

Let's review. We've got

  • a king,
  • an evil lord,
  • a little boy,
  • a pair of red stilts,
  • a flock of majorly invasive birds,
  • and a whole army of awesomely vigilant cats.

In other words, this is not your standard story. There are deeper matters afoot.
