Overview

Walter the Baker has a pretzel twist of a problem in this Ready-to-Read edition of a favorite from the creator of The Very Hungry Caterpillar.

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!

This is a great book with cute illustrations. It is about a baker who must prove himself to the dutch and duchess of his land. He works all night and can't come up with anything until finally the pretzel is created. This would be a great book to teach students to work hard and never give up. Even though the baker wanted to give up, he worked hard enough and eventually created the perfect snack.
