The Cook and the King
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. With clever rhyming verse and richly detailed illustrations, this is sure to become a ﬁrm favourite with children and adults alike.
