"King Bidgood's in the Bathtub," by Audrey Wood, is about a King who decides that he is going to spend the entire day in the bathtub. There are several different people in King Bidgood's court who try to convince him to get out of the tub, but the King is adamant on staying in! Finally, one clever Page figures out the one way to get King Bidgood to get out of the tub. The book is full of intricate illustrations that provide more detail than is written. "King Bidgood's in the Bathtub" would be a great predictable book for children to read since it falls into multiple categories. One of the categories being the chronological pattern since one of the details that the illustrations show is the sun moving throughout the day. Children will be able to follow along and predict what will happen next with this humorous book! ( )

Stubborn King Bidgood has decided he will spend the entire day in the tub, and no one will convince him otherwise! Try as they might, the Knight, the Queen, the Duke, and all of the King's Court fail at their attempts. One by one they enter the King's bathroom and somehow end up having outrageous adventures in the tub before coming out sopping wet. When there is an all out masquerade ball happening in the tub, the Page finally figures out how to get the King to come out.
Winner of the Caldecott Award, the illustrations truly are remarkable. Children will surely be enthralled by the outlandish tub adventures brought to life through colorful, detail oriented illustrations. ( )

One of my son's and daughter's favorites and a pleasure for reading aloud. The art is marvelous and as humorous as the text. ( )

Ah the costumes, ah the facial expressions & the body language, ah the rhyme, rhythm, and wordplay! I feel bad for the hard-working page, but he did triumph in the end. ( )
