This was a favorite when I was young. We loved studying the illustrations and finding all the little hidden details. The story is a lot of fun too, but the pictures were why we loved it so much. ( )

A medieval story about King Bidgood who refuses to leave the bathtub. He wants everyone to partake in every day activities, such as eating lunch, in the bathtub. One by one, all of the members of the court try to persuade the king to leave the cozy bathtub. He continually refuses. Will anyone be able to solve this problem? ( )

This was a lighthearted story about a king who did not want to leave from his bathtub. He quite literally spent the entire day in it, and shared it with his servants, queen, and court doing different things including eating and fishing. While the story was light and filled with humor, I felt that it was slightly inappropriate for its intended audience. The king is illustrated to be nude in the same bath that he is sharing with numerous characters, and even when his page - a young boy - enters. While this image is necessarily to portray him, the story line itself could have been different, or just not simply not written and gone in a different direction. ( )

I really like this book because of its pictures, as well as the use of repition. i think it highlights problem solving, as well as theory of mind. The pictures are very detailed and make for an engaging story.
