Title: King Bidgood's In The Bathtub
Author: Audrey Wood
Illustrator: Don Wood
Publisher: Harcourt Brace & Company
"'Help! Help!' cried the Page when the sun came up. 'King Bidgood's in the bathtub, and he won't get out! Oh, who knows what to do?'"
Synopsis: All the king's people don't know what to do when one unruly royal decides to spend the day in the bathtub. Everyone from the Knight to the Queen tries to entice King Bidgood to step out of the tub but it takes one smart Page at the end of the day to pull the plug on the king's shenanigans.
Why I liked it: Unless I love the author already, most of the books I decide to read is based on the cover art and Caldecott Honor illustrator Don Wood has immediately captured my interest with his full bodied colorful cover artwork. The historical research of subject matter shows through Mr. Wood's delightful illustrations which perfectly compliments his wife's whimsical tale of a day in the life of one naughty king.
