An entertaining retelling of a traditional tale, ideal for children practising their reading at home or in school. The king has a problem. A big problem. He doesn't have any children to rule the kingdom next.

But an old, wise lady has a plan: whoever grows the best flowers within three weeks shall be king!

There'll be sweet peas and poppies, marigolds and morning glories, but will there be a new ruler of all the land?This engaging tale from critically acclaimed author Andrew Fusek Peters is perfect for children who are learning to read by themselves and for Key Stage 1.

It features colourful illustrations from Nathan Reed and quirky characters young readers will find hard to resist. Bloomsbury Young Readers are the perfect way to get children reading, with book-banded stories by brilliant authors like Julia Donaldson.

They are packed with gorgeous colour illustrations and include inside cover notes to help adults reading with children, as well as ideas for activities related to the stories. 'Every child needs a Bloomsbury Young Reader. Fun, stretching, just the right length, full of adventurous vocabulary and punctuation.'
