This wonderfully funny follow-up to Nick Sharratt's acclaimed

début novel, The Cat and the King,

is a feast of fun and glorious illustration.

Alas and alack! The Royal Money Box is almost empty.

The king has to get a job - but what kind of job would be fit

for a king? Butcher? Baker? Candlestick Maker?

It takes many comical disasters, and a surprisingly helpful visit

from a dragon, before both cat and king find their perfect jobs.

Spectacular two-colour illustrations throughout

Beautiful gold foil cover

 

PRAISE FOR THE CAT AND THE KING:

"A majestic treat", Sunday Times

Children’s Book of the Week 2016

"Nick Sharratt's debut novel is an entertaining mix of familiar

experience and fairy-tale fantasy underscored by a thread of

anarchic humour. This is a beautifully-presented storybook, in

which the fabulous illustrations are as integral as the text, and

will appeal to adults as well as independent readers." -

PRAISE FOR NICE WORK FOR THE CAT AND THE KING

In this second book about the long-suffering, loyal cat and

the well-meaning but somewhat ineffectual King, there are plenty

of laughs and brilliant illustrative detail (the department store

is particularly lovely) from Nick Sharratt, whose recognisable

illustration is such a favourite with children.

A heavily illustrated short novel for early readers, it’s

a perfect book for younger ones that want something a bit longer

than a picture book but still love silly humour and a great,

well-written concept. - BookTrust
