About The King of the World!. . .

Rot is ready for another adventure and this time he’s going “Spudlunking!” But while Rot is excited to dig through the muck for treasure, all his friends seem to be more interested in their own plans.

When Rot uncovers a shiny old crown, he’s sure it’ll change their minds. And it does…in a most unexpected way. When Rot wears it he feels powerful…He feels invincible…He feels like…the King of the World! And everyone has to do what the king says.

But when Rot realizes he’s the only one having fun in his kingdom, suddenly he wonders whether he might have let the crown go to his head…


Ben Clanton is a lot like a mutant potato. He too enjoys mud, eating stuff, and playing games. When Ben isn’t doing these things (and sometimes when he is), he likes to make books. Books like the Tater Tales series, It Came in the Mail, Something Extraordinary, and the New York Times bestselling Narwhal and Jelly series. See what he is up to at BenClanton.com.
