    In a land far, far away, in a time long, long ago, lived a king who was good and kind. During his long reign, he brings his kingdom to a time of peace and prosperity. Wanting to leave a legacy behind, he asks his wise men to help him decide what kind of memory he will leave behind. Will he build a statue of grand heights? A building of grandeur and unthinkable beauty? A coin with his image that will be used by the poor and rich alike?

    Then one of his wise men advises that he discover the wisdom of the ages, to share with the people of the present and of the future. Some little piece of wisdom that will live on even after they are all gone. So the king invites citizens of every walk of life to share their wisdom, one by one. Will anyone have the one piece of wisdom to rival all others?

    This was a charming story set in the distant past, with many examples of good wisdom that are allegorical in nature. The people bring forth the wisdom they have learned through experiences of their trade as well as life itself. We all fancy ourselves as knowledgeable on one thing or another, but Stovall shows us at story's end that some of life's greatest mysteries are truly very simple indeed.

    I enjoyed this small book. It is easy to read but filled with immense knowledge and wisdom. The king has decided that rather than a monument to his greatness he will proclaim something as "The Wisdom of the Ages" as his legacy. Each chapter finds a medieval king sitting in his Throne Room listening to someone from his land explain what they think is the Wisdom from their point of view and experience. It reinterates that everyone has wisdom and knowledge no matter what their status in society or age. It also points out that no matter what century we live in, wisdom is universal and ageless. Although this book is billed as a children's book it has much to teach the adult. An excellent book.

    "The King's Legacy" is a wonderful allegory in which each chapter focuses on a new piece of wisdom as the king hunts for "The Wisdom of the Ages". It is well written, and while I have heard many of the pieces of wisdom in the course of all my reading, for many this would be a wonderful way to have it all in one book. There is an illustration at the beginning of each chapter which is nice, but the pictures didn't really enhance anything for me since I thought they were a little cheesy. But that is a minor detail. I did think it was a very nice looking gift type edition that would make a good gift. There is a page at the front where you can inscribe To and From and a section at the back where you can put your own wisdom in. Overall, this is a wonderful little book that would be great as a gift or to own for yourself.

A search to commemorate his service as king. He calls forth the wise men, asking their opinions. Many suggestions were put forth. The suggestion that caught his attention, however was the passing forth of the Wisdom of the Ages.After much deliberation and seeking, and thinking, the king, and the wise men realize, they know not the Wisdom of the Ages. Thus begins the true heart of our story. One by one, people from all walk of life, come forth to share the wisdom, their experience's have brought them to realize. From the mighty judge, the rich banker, the lowly farmer, the funny jester, all who wish to do so, are invited to present their wisdom. After days and days of hearing great truths, wisdom filled speeches. The King makes a declaration that at a certain time he will present the Wisdom of the Ages.

See the wise and loving king, rebuke the pride of the nobility, and embrace the wisdom of the commoner. Learn exactly what is the Wisdom of the Ages.Jim Stovall has written a book that is a lovely story, complete with fairy tale art and a lovely presentation.
