It’s Martha Moth’s birthday and she’s having friends over! Unfortunately, her kitchen is bare, except for a small jar of her favorite dust. Just in time, she buys ingredients from the store, ready to make a lovely dinner for her guests. But oh dear!

This book goes well with a demo using a hole punch as "Marth" and pictures of the scarf, sweater, yarn, and socks. A sweet story with good artwork that pre-readers will love.

This was cute and original. I like the dust used as seasoning for the wool. My 2.5 year old liked it.
