The King's Panto is a fun modern story with a traditional feel. Cleverly written in rhyming verse, it tells the tale of a bossy, grumpy king who shouts orders at everyone around him. When he commands a Royal Pantomime in the middle of summer, featuring all the characters from well known fairy tales, it soon becomes clear he has barked one order too many! With no time for rehearsals, no script and only the king in the audience, the panto begins in chaos and ends in disaster! But some old wrongs are put right and some valuable lessons learned. Packed with theatrical references, The King's Panto is a fun romp of a read for children and parents alike.
