Review: Eddie's kingdom is his apartment building where all the tenants are at odds with each other--and Eddie. Armed with pencil and paper Eddie sets out to bring peace to his kingdom by creating a special group drawing. He knocks on each door and asks if he can draw the tenant's picture. During the sitting he listens to each one's complaint, suggesting or presenting a solution. Once the drawing is complete he invites everyone in his kingdom to the unveiling where they see themselves caricatured stubborn animals.
