In this delightful story, the king refuses to leave his bathtub and rule the kingdom. One by one, the Knight, the Queen, the Duke, and eventually all the members of the King's Court attempt - and fail - to persuade King Bidgood to leave his sumptuous bath. Why King Bidgood finally leaves his bathtub makes a delightful surprise ending to this exuberant tale.
DON AND AUDREY WOOD  are the husband-and-wife creators of many beloved books for children, including The Napping House,   Piggies, Heckedy Peg, and King Bidgood's in the Bathtub, a Caldecott Honor Book. The Woods live in Hawaii.
