Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Walter the Baker is famous for his breads, rolls, cookies, tarts, and pies. The Duke and Duchess especially love his warm sweet rolls, delivered fresh to their castle every morning. But one day the cat spills the milk, and Walter is forced to serve the Duke and Duchess rolls made with water. After one bite the Duke throws down his roll in disgust and summons Walter to the castle. He threatens to banish the baker unless he can take the same dough and make a good-tasting roll that the rising sun can shine through three times. Will Walter succeed in his task, or will he have to leave his town forever?

With good humor and the vibrantly colored paper collages that are known and loved the world over, Eric Carle has concocted a delicious book that kids will savor as much as they love eating...shhh...pretzels!

Synopsis:

An engaging tale from one of America's most beloved artists and storytellers. When the Duke notices that Walter the baker has substituted water for milk in his sweet rolls, he presents Walter with a challenge: create from one piece of dough a roll the sun can shine through three times, or be banished from the Duchy. Full color.
