This Caldecott Honor Book is a humorous tale where a stubborn king refuses to get out of his bubble filled tub. His page, along with other members of his court, try to persuade him out with ideas such as battling, feasting, fishing, and dancing. But, to their surprise, none of the ideas succeed. It isn’t until the plug is pulled by the page that the king finally finds his way out of the tub. In this unit, you will find activities such as making ribbon wands, having lunch in the tub, and making bubble art.
