With a singsong rhythm, comical illustrations, and a down-home flavor, Dayle Ann Dodds and John Manders serve up a humorous lesson in multiplication.
Down on the farm one morning, Papa McFay orders his sons to hop to their chores. But from Minnie's kitchen wafts a smell that gets the boys itchin', and one by one, they succumb to the call of that sweet aroma. Each brother arrives at Minnie's twice as hungry as his brother before — and looking for twice as much grub. Now what will happen when Papa McFay finds out his sons are gone and the chores are not done? The boys will be in double trouble for sure!

Meet the Author
Dayle Ann Dodds is the author of many books for children, including THE KETTLES GET NEW CLOTHES and THE SHAPE OF THINGS. She says, "When I was young, my parents had a ranch with lots of fences to paint. Often my father would wake me up early to go into town to a diner just like Minnie's for a cowboy breakfast — stacks of fluffy buttermilk pancakes piled high to the sky!"
John Manders works out of his studio in Pittsburgh, creating artwork for such picture books as SENOR DON GATO. He says of MINNIE'S DINER, "I visited many diners, drank many cups of coffee, and ate many French fries while searching for the perfect diner."
