The King's Taster by Kenneth Oppel
Another great book that Noah loves, (Pirates is still his current fav though!). He absolutely LOVES his bedtime stories. And I love reading them to him!
Here is a review of the book:
"Max is the cook's dog. And because he is also the king's taster, Max gets to feast on French Fries! Rose Pudding! Pizza! No wonder Max loves his job. Who wouldn't want to dine on these delicious dishes? The new king, that's who. And if the new king has his way, it won't just be their job that the cook and Max lose!"
