The king was very particular about his food. No one could get it just right! Until the king met Wobbly Bob. But, Wobbly Bob was afraid of everything! He was afraid that he’d nick himself with the sharp kitchen knives. He was also afraid he’d get dirt from the vegetable garden on his new apron. Wobbly Bob needed a companion to help him – the king himself tagged along every step of the way. This is a tale of a great, big appetite, of an unlikely friendship, and a whole lot of bravery!
