King Bidgood's in the Bathtub
By Audrey Wood, illustrated by Don Wood.
King Bidgood's in the tub...and he won't get out...
...the duke can't convince him. The queen can't convince him.
King Bidgood's eating lunch in there...fishing in there...
doing battle in there...
Did I mention fishing? This is my favorite page. It's full of worms and fish and turtles and frogs.
Pretty soon the whole court is invited. They get a little soppy. Plus the ladies keep averting their eyes from this:
King Bidgood's royal nekkedness.
Finally, they figure out a way to get the king out of his tub.
They pull the plug.
This is the same hubby and wifey team who did The Napping House and Heckedy Peg. Amazing illustrations and whimsical stories, every one.
