Hooray for Bread

Hooray for Bread

9781406337990 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. Le'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? Bruce Ingman's first book, When Martha’s Away (9781406329605), was published in 1995 and was honoured with the National Art Library Award. It also won the 1996 Mother Goose Award for the most exciting British newcomer to children's books. Since then, he has made four more picture books, including Bad News, I’m in Charge and Boing!, written by Sean Taylor. He recently illustrated Ronny Rock starring in a Thousand Tiny Explosions (9781406331578) by Merryn Threadgould. He lives in London W2.
