From the Publisher
Asch’s lively, loose-lined illustrations are full of humorous bravado. Kids will adore the endearing escapades, and adults may think twice before cutting down on carbohydrates.

[T]his is quite the giggle-inducer.

[A]lmost every page has something laugh-out-loud funny: another improbably situation ... a goofy punch line ... a visual tickle. [Y]oungsters ... should proclaim, “C’est mangifique!

This wacky tale with its kid-pleasing humor is sure to elicit giggles ? [a] lighthearted romp through the streets of Paris. Bon appétit!
