King Burue Changes the Rules

by 8-year old Natalija Bajlo


“King Burue Changes the Rules is a children’s story with an adult dilemma told through the keen interpretation of an 8-year-old child. Author Natalija Bajlo (who is actually age 8) conveys the message about how we should treat others and how everyone is entitled to like — or love — anyone we choose, regardless of whatever societal “rules” are perceived to exist. In a charming and beautifully-illustrated story about an animal kingdom led by a goose named King Burue, Natalija challenges rules that are not fair and should not exist and leads the King to his conclusion that those rules should be changed. It is an important lesson for children told in a most entertaining way.”
