Description

A simple trip to the store for a box of sody salleratus (baking soda) turns into a disappearing act for a boy, a girl, an old man and an old woman. It's all up to a little squirrel -- who's determined to have biscuits for supper -- to discover their fate and rescue them. The simple plot, filled with lots of repetition and fun-to-repeat sounds, is perfect for reading aloud. Exuberant illustrations by Alan and Lea Daniel leap off the page, adding hilarious details that enhance this lively retelling of the traditional tale.
