This books is about a little book who has a dream where he goes into a kitchen, gets mixed in with the batter. He pops out and tells the cooks he is not the ingredients. The cooks need milk so the little boy flies in a plane made of bread dough up to the Milky Way to get milk for the cooks. This why we have cake in the morning. A cute story with interesting pictures. Be warned the little boy is naked and his penis is in the drawings. Something you may want to discuss with your class before you read it to them.
