The Bachelor and the Bean by Shelley Fowles
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


When a grumpy old bachelor loses his last lunchtime bean down a well, he starts to yell. To stop the noise, the Imp down the well gives him a pot which conjures up delicious food. But when a jealous old lady steals the pot, even stranger things happen - and the bachelor's life will never be the same again! A genie, magic and pots and pots of food are just some of the ingredients in Shelley Fowles' lively retelling of a traditional Jewish Moroccan tale.
