Walter the Baker is famous for his breads, 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. The Duke is disgusted and threatens to banish the baker unless he can make a tasty roll through which the rising sun can shine three times. Will Walter succeed in his task?
Filled with Eric Carle’s good humor and vibrantly colored paper collages that are known and loved the world over, Walter the Baker is now available as a sturdy board book edition and is a treat kids will savor.
