King Rollo by David McKee

The King would like to go for a walk, it’s Spring, but everyone is too busy, so when he’s asked to tidy his room he retorts that’s he is too busy going for a walk.
Do the illustrations seem familiar? Are they stirring distant memories – the taste of synthetically colourful ice pops perhaps, that’s because they are by the same guy who gave us Mr Benn from Festive Road.

OMG! Flashback or what!

My two 11 1/2 and
13 1/2 have both sat and 'read' the whole book from memory. I LOVED reading the King Rollo books and this EXACT one was the favourite.
And don't even get me started on farmer Duck......
