The barnyard crows and Jack wakes up hungry, of course! What does he want for breakfast? A big pancake! But first, Jack's mother needs flour from the mill, an egg from the balck hen, milk from the spotted cow, butter churned from fresh cream, and firewood fro the stove. Will Jack ever get his pankcake? With his trademark bibrant collage illustrations and a lively text, Eric Carle has crated a mouthwatering tale for young readers.
