Walter el panadero (Walter the Baker)

Walter the Baker has a pretzel twist of a problem in this Spanish language edition of a favorite from the creator of The Very Hungry Caterpillar.

Walter el panadero tiene un problema tan enredado como un pretzel torcido en esta edición en español del creador de La oruga muy hambrienta.

Everyone loves Walter the Baker’s rolls and pastries, especially the Duke and Duchess. But one day an unfortunate accident forces Walter to substitute water for milk in his sweet rolls, and the incensed Duke and Duchess present Walter with a challenge—create from one piece of dough a tasty roll that the sun can shine through three times, or be banished from the kingdom.

Will Walter have to leave his home forever? With good humor and his familiar, vibrant collage illustrations, Eric Carle cooks up an engaging, suspenseful story with a surprise ending to delight young readers—and pretzel-lovers of all ages.
