    It is only fitting that the top-selling book in the UK is a children’s book about King Charles III. The illustrated biography of King Charles III, aimed at children, has recently become the top-selling book in the UK book chart, just ahead of his coronation. Illustrated by Matt Hunt, this nonfiction book is part of the popular Little People, Big Dreams series and managed to sell an impressive 15,786 copies in the seven days leading up to April 29th. It is worth noting that the book series as a whole sold a remarkable 495,000 copies in the UK alone in 2022.

    Last January, Prince Harry’s memoir called “Spare” made history as the fastest-selling nonfiction book. However, its popularity has dwindled as it now ranks 117th on the charts and only sold 1,862 copies last week.

    Discover the life of King Charles!

    Little Charles always knew that one day, he would have a big job to do. As the son of Queen Elizabeth II, he was a prince, and in the future, he was to inherit the throne of the United Kingdom.

    As a young man, he developed a passion for one cause; the environment. Charles recognized that plastics and pollutants were causing harm to Earth, and as the Prince of Wales, he spent all his efforts championing climate justice and sustainability.

    As a member of the Royal Family, Charles used his power to build important organizations such as The Prince’s Trust, a charity that works to improve the lives of young people across the UK.

    And in 2022, when he became King, he pledged that he would spend the rest of his life serving his people with loyalty, respect and love.

    This inspiring book features stylish and quirky illustrations and extra facts at the back, including a biographical timeline with historical photos and a detailed profile of the royal’s life, from little prince to grown-up king.
