This utterly charming tale relates the story of King Mortimer, a royal plagued by Obsessive Compulsive Disorder who only finds comfort and ease by surrounding himself with the number 5 — be it 5 knights, 5 moats or 5 points on his crown.

One day he awakens to find that he has grown a sixth finger! Woe is he! His wizard is quick to suggest a remedy, but not one without risk. In a state of crisis, he takes advice from far and wide on how to achieve this cure. In turn, a jester, a gypsy, a professor and others present plans increasingly unlikely and complex. Driven to despair, epiphany is at last reached — perhaps his condition is not half so bad...

Beautifully illustrated in full color and with wonderful rhyming verse, The King's 6th Finger will appeal to all ages.

About the Author / Artist:
Jolby & Rachel Roelke
Jolby & Rachel Roelke
Jolby is a collaborative design and illustration studio based in Portland, Oregon. Josh Kenyon & Colby Nichols began their partnership in 2005 after meeting at the Art Institute in San Diego. The two have exhibited their illustration work in galleries all over the world and combine their talents as Art Directors, Designers, and Illustrators. The magic of Jolby comes from Colby’s artistic obsession with creatures and characters and Josh’s love for color, pattern and texture. They try to achieve two goals within the work they create: “Tell a memorable story” and “make people smile.” They are always taking on new projects and love meeting new people.
