The king searches his kingdom far and wide for the perfect cook. He 's very particular, and none of the cooks can get the job done just right. Until the king meets Wobbly Bob. The king thinks Wobbly Bob might be the perfect fit, but there 's just one small hitch --Wobbly Bob is afraid of everything. He 's afraid that he 'll nick himself with the sharp kitchen knives, and he 's afraid he 'll get dirt from the vegetable garden on his new apron. Wobbly Bob needs a companion to help him feel brave, so the king himself tags along every step of the way.

Full-color illustrations.
