Etsy Find: The King's 6th Finger

I think my little Miles would enjoy this! 

The King's 6th Finger (...)  is a tale about a King named Mortimer who is obsessed with the number 5. He has 5 towers on his castle, 5 moats around it, 5 knights on 5 horses, 5 queens, 5 servants, 5 meals... he's obsessed! Until one day, from his five-legged chair, he looks down at his hand and discovers that he's grown a 6th finger!  

Made possible thanks to the funding platform for creative projects, Kickstarter.com, The King's 6th Finger is the first collaborative effort between Jolby and Rachel Roelke. You can buy it from their etsy store here.
