Publisher Comments:

WHAT IS JUNKET?

Junket is a delicious custard and a lovely dessert.

But why is the old man with a red beard and red slippers eating such an enormous bowl of junket, and what could he possibly be thinking about while he feasts?

That’s a good question! And one that the old man poses to the crowds and crowds of people that gather to watch him. In fact, almost everyone in the whole world wants to know the answer to this riddle.

And only one little boy has the answer.

This ingenious book of inspired nonsense was the very first from Dorothy Kunhardt, whose Pat the Bunny has delighted generations of young children.

About the Author

Dorothy Kunhardt (1901–1979) was an influential American author of books designed for small children, best known for her interactive Pat the Bunny (1940), the best-selling American children’s book of all time and the second-best-selling children’s book in the United States after Beatrix Potter’s The Tale of Peter Rabbit. Her first book, Junket Is Nice, appeared in 1933 and was soon followed by other children’s classics, including Now Open the Box, Lucky Mrs. Ticklefeather, Brave Mr. Buckingham, and Tiny Animal Stories. Kunhardt wrote nearly fifty books in all, including (with her son, Philip B. Kunhardt Jr.) Twenty Days, an account of the aftermath of Lincoln’s assassination, and several other historical works about nineteenth-century America.
