Product Details


Polly Dunbar’s pictures are a confectionary dream: ingredients fly around the pages in balletic swoops, the typography dances, and the babies’ energy is boundless—it’s a candy-coated version of Sendak’s In the Night Kitchen. Joyce Dunbar’s text has only a passing connection to the Mother Goose rhyme, and her baking-themed wordplay (“It’s hulla-balloony-moon-time!”) is the literary equivalent of a sugar high.
—Publishers Weekly

A sweet confection through and through, from the glitter on the cover to the nonpareils on the endpapers.
—Kirkus Reviews

By inviting audience participation in each rollicking step and possibly pairing it with an actual baking activity, this sweet story can be a treat.
—School Library Journal
