Sam lives in a house with a big yard and has lots of friends but what he doesn't have is donuts - and that is what he truly wants. He sets out for the city in search of donuts where he meets Mr. Bikferd, a man with a wagon full of donuts. Together they walk the streets in search of donuts. When Mr. Bikferd falls in love with Pretzel Annie, Sam is left in charge of the donuts. Sam saves an old woman with his donuts and learns that you don't need donuts when you've got love.

Originally published in 1973 - and out of print for over thirty years - the true beauty of this book is in Stamaty's illustrations. You can get lost in the detailed pen and ink drawings. You can discover something new with each new reading, and you can rejoice that sometimes love and donuts go together.
Ages 4 - 8.
