This is a really fun corporate read aloud with a K/1 class! They love chiming in with "merci!" and giggling at the ridiculous uses for his baguette. That he eats the baguette in the end is _supposed_ to be crazy ... it's like animals that talk or wear clothes ... anything goes with fiction. Enjoy the humor!
I read this for my Book Buddies Book Club (a book with a food in the title). I liked seeing all the different situations M. Saguette found himself in. The baguette was pretty funny. But after all that, there is no way I would eat that bread. Plus, I didn't like the bread in Europe anyhow.

Monsieur Saguette finds many uses for his baguette before he reaches home and eats it with his soup. Some repetition of format. Simple, muted illustrations.
How could he possibly eat that baguette?

I really loved the illustrations.

A bit ridiculous and unsanitary but ok.
