They were all published in the 1980s--does that sound about right? Unfortunately Omaha Public Library no longer has copies of any of these, but you can "look inside the book" at Amazon for at least two of these; the illustrations are quite distinctive, so that may help you clinch it! The King Who Rained is here. I'm pretty sure you could borrow any of them via interlibrary loan--you will find details on doing that at http://omahalibrary.org/my-library/interlibrary-loan
Let us know if our guess is wrong, and we'll keep looking!
