Hot dogs save the day! Stan makes the best hot dogs around. At lunchtime, he makes lots of new friends, too. Then a snowstorm hits, and some of Stan's new friends are stranded. It's Stan the Hot Dog Man to the rescue!From School Library Journal:
Grade 1-3 --A readable but sometimes stilted text introduces Stan while he is working at a bakery. He retires and immediately becomes a "hot dog man" in his own van, parked on a popular street corner. Stan is very happy, and his business is doing well until he is stranded in a snow storm, along with a school bus. The children and the bus driver climb into the hot dog van and enjoy themselves while waiting for the snow plow to rescue them. Kessler uses gently washed pen-and-ink drawings to add interest and detail to the story. Stan is just grandfatherly enough and his wife Emma is a perfect grandmotherly match as his friend and companion. This title is not the cream of the crop in the "I Can Read" series, but it will be well used in all collections that need material for beginning readers. --Sharron McElmeel, Cedar Rapids Community Schools, IA
