There once was a very hungry king

Who needed a cook like anything . . .

. . . but the king is very fussy; he tries all the cooks in the kingdom, but no one is good enough. Then he spots Wobbly Bob. Maybe Bob can whip up his favourite dinner? But how will Bob be able to cook for the king when he's scared of . . . well, everything?!

Discover how the hungry king helps Wobbly Bob face his fears on a cooking adventure across the land and sea.

MEDIA REVIEWS
A hilarious role reversal comedy. * The Observer [The New Review] *
Its message is a head-scratcher and the story asks more questions than it answers, which is all rather refreshing in the often overly simplistic land of the modern picture book... Lots to discuss over your dinner. * The Times Childrens Book of the Week *
A lovely rhyming tale of self-sufficiency and confidence, illustrated with humour and brio. * Daily Mail *
A comical rhyming tale with elegant images. * The Sunday Times Culture *
An endearing tale of team spirit. * Daily Express *
The best-selling author of The Gruffalo deploys a story-telling device equally full of cunning in this witty story about the way a King is tricked into doing some work . . . David Robert's blustering King and wimpy Cook are a delight. * LoveReading4Kids *
The queen of rhyming text, Julia Donaldson, has come up with another cracker... Accompanied by beautiful artwork by David Roberts, this book will get read to bits. * iNews *
