Summary from Spoon Factory Stories
In the kingdom of Gudfud is arriving Justin, an enthusiastic young chef called to cooking exclusively for the little prince Bumbly.

"In the reign of good food it isn't hard" he think, but an odd sprite strain him, they living an amazing adventure between strange recipe and bizarre characters

Nayu's thoughts
Getting children of all ages to eat vegetables can sometimes be a battle, so anything which makes vegetables fun without being preachy is good in my book. This story does just that. The king is a ridiculous character, who hates trying anything new. He dictates what he will eat, despite the cook's attempt to get him to eat different foods. It was rather clever how the vegetable kept using a disguise to sell its wares, and how in the end the only way the king can feel better is to eat vegetables. This is a read which will provide lots of laughs and hopefully make vegetables seem not quite as scary.
