    Beautifully written with a lovely balance of humour and education. Eye catching detailed pictures which both my 3 year old and 5 year old love.

    This book has a wonderful story and children love it. The illustrations take you on a journey with the animals who come up with a clever plot to teach the king a lesson. There is a moral to the story which prompts some great discussion with children. Great book for bedtime or in the classroom.

    This is a beautifully illustrated book, with the story told in rhyme. The rhyming makes it a really good read.

    It is about a greedy king who always wants something for nothing. I think we may all know someone like that. The poor fed up farmer, offers to give him all the animals for a fee…….

    The story continues and brings in numbers to the mix, with wonderful illustrations to match the number, enabling you to count along with your little person whilst the story is told.

    The book has a great moral at the end, which I think young people will understand in their own way.

    All in all a great read and superbly illustrated. A must read for your young person
