Where in the world can you find a meal fit for a king?

Max is the cook’s dog. And because he is also the king’s taster, Max gets to feast on wild boar! Cheese pies! Rose pudding! No wonder Max loves his job. Who wouldn’t want to dine on these delicious dishes? The new king, that’s who.

Max and the cook must find a new recipe—and fast—otherwise, if the new king has his way, they’ll be losing more than just their jobs!

The King’s Taster features stunning collage artwork, lush fabrics and painting from the phenomenal and award-winning illustrator team Steve Johnson and Lou Fancher. This will be a beautiful package featuring a character kids will love and a surprise twist that will delights parents and children alike!
