    1. Police s Synchronicity album was one of the first I bought on tape So I was driven by a sense of nostalgia to read this, and of course, since I was so focused on my own want out of the story that I failed to realize at first that this was a storybook about a child s illness And the selection of the King of Pain was a perfect choice Of course, I sang it as I flipped the pages To be honest minimalism is not my personal preference, that said, there were some wonderful interpretations of the lyrics [...]


    2. I am not sure about this at all So the illustrator s son was diagnosed with a serious illness at the age of three The man and his son had to endure many visits to doctors and hospitals and the boy had to endure painful treatments They heard the Police song King of Pain on the radio and the little boy caught on to its sentiment.The illustrator created semi abstract geometric illustrations to accompany the lyrics and that s basically this book.The little boy recovered from his illness and he s ok [...]


    3. Picture books are not always only for kids Review of There s a little black spot on the sun today One poem.Minimalistic illustrations.And along with Malo, we the readers also understand how pain can be communicated through the pages of a book.Pain is easily said and quickly written but can be shaking, shocking, breath taking and if all this is there on pages with simple geometric designs filled with primary colours in an arrangement that tells the entire story, there is no reason why any adult c [...]


    4. What does you pain feel like Can you tell me Okay, I ll try Pain is like Minimalistic Simple And a beautiful design exercise Pretty straight forward You can read it in 10 minutes and get nothing from it Or you can put King on pain on repeat and get a new experience from this amazing song.


    5. This wasn t what I thought it was going to be, but was very cute I loved the use of plain shapes to tell the story of feeling pain.


    6. The illustrator notes and prologue tells the reader that the illustrator s 3 year old son had a serious illness which required a series of painful shots Through the injections, his son would cry and beg him to stop On one of their car trips to the hospital to get shots, they heard the song King of Pain written by Sting and sung by The Police His son told him that he felt like the King of Pain, thus prompting him to illustrate Sting s lyrics in a children s book Although the music and the lyrics [...]


    7. Taken right from The Police song, this is the story of a small boy with a disease, with the treatment hurting worse, so he identifies with the song King of Pain From there his father drew this small book The artwork is graphic in the modern sense of the word, composed of simple triangles that oddly yet emotionally bring the words to life It s mostly the lyrics that are rendered, some literal, others abstract particularly happy not to see how the beached whale ended up Though simple to the point [...]


    8. A mysterious book It made me slow down, read and reflect on the lyrics of The King of Pain, which was satisfying It felt stark, yet emotive The illustrations keep the focus on the words and questioning what they mean I am not sure who the audience is, but I have a feeling if they find it they will appreciate the book.


    9. Not sure if this would appeal to the majority of kids, but the illustrations are eye catching and the text might help those suffering from pain, medical treatment, etc.


    10. Not sure how this would go down with kids The illustrations are geometric and weirdly abstract and the lyricswell, there just that lyrics Not exactly a story, is it


    11. Pain in the abstract Sometimes bright and blaring, sometimes dark and consuming Metallic and angular and deeply personal.
