This wonderfully funny follow-up to Nick Sharratt's acclaimed
début novel, The Cat and the King,
is a feast of fun and glorious illustration.
Alas and alack! The Royal Money Box is almost empty.
The king has to get a job - but what kind of job would be fit
for a king? Butcher? Baker? Candlestick Maker?
It takes many comical disasters, and a surprisingly helpful visit
from a dragon, before both cat and king find their perfect jobs.

Spectacular two-colour illustrations throughout
Beautiful gold foil cover
 
PRAISE FOR THE CAT AND THE KING:
"A majestic treat", Sunday Times
Children’s Book of the Week 2016
"Nick Sharratt's debut novel is an entertaining mix of familiar
experience and fairy-tale fantasy underscored by a thread of
anarchic humour. This is a beautifully-presented storybook, in
which the fabulous illustrations are as integral as the text, and
will appeal to adults as well as independent readers." -
BookTrust
PRAISE FOR NICE WORK FOR THE CAT AND THE KING
In this second book about the long-suffering, loyal cat and
the well-meaning but somewhat ineffectual King, there are plenty
of laughs and brilliant illustrative detail (the department store
is particularly lovely) from Nick Sharratt, whose recognisable
illustration is such a favourite with children.
A heavily illustrated short novel for early readers, it’s
a perfect book for younger ones that want something a bit longer
than a picture book but still love silly humour and a great,
well-written concept. - BookTrust
