Read on CBeebies 2 May at 6.50pm 2 May 2013 All fans of ice cream and jelly will love this story of the secret of making a jelly wobble. The Princess loves all kinds of jelly and she loves the biggest and wobbliest kind the best. One day, the palace cook produces a beautiful and huge red jelly. The only problem is, it doesn’t wobble! The Princess offers a reward to anyone who can make the jelly wobble. There are loads of suggestions none of which work until, luckily, a little boy comes up with a brilliant suggestion. Can anyone guess what it is?

With quirky illustrations, this will appeal to adults and children! The very funny story with an eccentric main character is perfect for both boys and girls.


The Jelly That Wouldn't Wobble by Angela Mitchell

A tasty tale about how jelly and ice cream came to be!

It is Princess Lolly’s 89th birthday and she is holding a banquet. For her birthday the cook has made the most magnificent jelly. However the jelly resfuses to wobble! All the different guests try different ways of making it wobble but the jelly is stubborn; it doesn’t want to be eaten. Finally the smallest guest comes up with an idea to put ice cream with the jelly. Suddenly the jelly begins shivering and quaking, then finally it wobbles.


'Original, fun and quirky - oh, and great illustrations as well. 5/5' - The Sun
