Pantaloon by Kathryn Jackson

Jackson, Kathryn. Pantaloon, illustrated by Steven Salerno. A Golden Book, 2010. $17.99. PICTURE BOOK. Pantaloon the poodle loves the bakery. One day he sees a “Help Wanted” sign and offers his assistance. The baker declines his help because he thinks poodle likes to eat more than bake. Pantaloon dresses up as an old lady, but is caught out. The baker goes for more sugar and trips over Pantaloon’s bike. Pantaloon helps the battered baker to his bed and finishes all of his baking and deliveries. Customers clamored for Pantaloon so the baker had to come up with a plan to bring Pantaloon back. The story was originally published in 1951, but has been re-released with new tasty illustrations that look good enough to eat. EL – ADVISABLE. Samantha, Public Librarian.
