Cook and the King – hardbackAuthor: Julia Donaldson
Illustrator: David Roberts
There once was a very hungry king, who needed a cook like anything – but the king is very fussy, and none of the cooks he tries can make a dish that tastes just right! Then the most unlikely of chefs comes along: the shuffling, shaking Wobbly Bob. He’s scared of everything, from catching fish to digging for potatoes, but can he convince the hungry king to give him the job?
The Cook and the King is a brilliantly funny story from the fantastic picture book partnership of Julia Donaldson and David Roberts, creators of Tyrannosaurus Drip, The Troll, and Jack and the Flum Flum Tree.
With Julia’s clever rhyming verse and David’s richly detailed, humorous illustrations, this is sure to become a firm favourite with children and adults alike.
