Hooray for Bread

Written by Allan Ahlberg

Illustrated by Bruce Ingman

Hooray for Bread Synopsis

From the creators of The Pencil and The Runaway Dinner comes the story of a loaf of bread, told slice by yummy slice! Three cheers for bread, HIP-HIP-HOORAY! Early in the morning the baker bakes a lovely loaf of bread. SO lovely, in fact, that by the time the sun goes down it's been gobbled up! Every. Last. Slice. Who eats it all? Well, the baker munches on its crunchy crust. The baker's wife eats delicious marmalade toast and the baker's son gets a tasty cheese and ham sandwich for his lunch. Let's not forget the dog, even he gets his share! HOORAY FOR BREAD! Slice by slice and crumb by crumb, everyone eats their fill of bread, with a teeny tiny mouse nibbling up the very last scrap. Hooray - squeak-squeak - for bread! But wait - there are some missing slices! Where could have they gone? Is there a tasty double spread just for YOU?
