William was a fabulous chef, but couldn’t quite find his niche in fairy tale headquarters. He’s been busy reading cookbooks instead of fairy tales. After a few mix-ups, William discovers where he meant to use his cooking talents. The author cleverly weaves cooking vocabulary throughout this tale and the appearance of many familiar characters makes this a delicious read.
