King Bidgood's in the Bathtub (Hardcover)
In this funny bath-time story, a stubborn king refuses to leave his bathtub. After all, why should he? He can dance, sing, fish, play, and even eat in his wonderful tub.
One by one, the Knight, the Queen, the Duke—and eventually all the members of the King's Court—try to persuade King Bidgood to leave his sumptuous bath. No luck!
Why the King finally leaves his bath makes for a delightful surprise ending to this delightful tale.
