A Caldecott Honor Book as well as a School Library Journal Best Book of the Year, this hilarious tale for readers 3 to 7 looks in on the mischievous King Bidgood as he refuses to leave his bubbly, toy-filled bathtub. One by one, the Knight, the Queen, the Duke, and all the members of the King's Court fail to convince the pruney monarch to get out—until the Page figures out an ingenious solution.
"Beauty aside, this [story] also has a panache and sly wit that will please children and their parents, who will be called on to peruse the book again and again."—Booklist
