'Alas', said the queen to her husband the king. 'How can he grow when he won't eat a thing?' In a determined effort to stimulate their son's appetite, the king and queen embark on a trip around the world. At every turn, they are treated to scrumptious dishes. But the prince is unmoved. Idlees with chutney? No thank you. Tortillas? Congee? Dosas with dahl? No, no, no! The royal family is in crisis, until an elderly gentleman appears, holding a small red bottle ... could this be the answer to their woes? Actor Hugh Bonneville is at his exceptional best as he narrates this round-the-world caper by Joanne Oppenheim.
