    As soon as I saw this was so excited to see it was written by Julia Donaldson My kids absolutely adore her books And as suspected, my son and even my 1 year old daughter loved reading it It is now the number one requested book in our house I have had to read it to them twice today already The hungry king needs a new cook But Wobbly Bob is a bit scared Of EVERYTHING Will he get the job of the new cook even though he seems to be too scared to even cut chips Its a cute and delightful witty story about the hungry king s search for a new cook The illustrations are colourful, beautiful and the rhymes are heaps of fun My son loves the ending of the story and laughs every time He loves it when the cook exclaims I m scared, I m scared, I m terribly scared Easily a 5...
