A boy's imagination brings new friends into his life in Caldecott Medal-winning illustrator and author Uri Shulevitz's picture book One Monday Morning.

"One Monday morning the king, the queen, and the little prince came to visit me. But I wasn't home . . . "

On a dreary, rainy day, a boy playing with a deck of cards looks out his New York City tenement window and begins a story. A royal family pays the boy a visit, only to find him not at home. Every day, the royals return with a grander, more colorful entourage in their wake, but still the boy isn't there to greet them.

When they finally do gather in the tiny space of the boy's room, the sun appears to shine down upon the new fellowship.
