Walter el panadero (Walter the Baker)

Illustrated by Eric Carle
LIST PRICE $7.99

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.

A todo el mundo le gustan los panecillos y la pastelería de Walter el panadero, especialmente al Duque y la Duquesa. Pero un desafortunado accidente obliga a Walter a sustituir agua por leche para sus panecillos dulces y los indignados Duque y Duquesa le imponen un desafío: o crea con una masa de harina un panecillo sabroso a través del cual el sol brille tres veces o será desterrado del reino.

¿Walter tendrá que abandonar su hogar para siempre? Con buen humor y sus reconocidas y vibrantes ilustraciones con collages, Eric Carle saca del horno una intrigante historia llena de suspenso, con un sorprendente final que deleitará a los jóvenes lectores y a quienes les gustan los pretzels, sin importar la edad que tengan.
