About the Author:

Kathryn Jackson wrote dozens of Golden Books and story collections in the 1940s and 1950s, some of which have never been out of print. Her many titles include The Animals’ Merry Christmas and Tawny Scrawny Lion, and, with her husband, Byron, The Saggy Baggy Elephant and Pirates, Ships, and Sailors.

Steven Salerno has illustrated many popular picture books for children, including Mrs. Wow Never Wanted a Cow by Martha Freeman, The Dirty Little Boy by Margaret Wise Brown, and Chicken Chuck by Bill Martin, Jr. His illustrations also appear in magazines, advertising campaigns, and on product packaging. He lives in New York City.

From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-Grade 2—This newly illustrated story (originally published by Golden Bks. in 1951) recounts the madcap efforts of a pastry-loving poodle to be hired at a local bakery. Pantaloon, zipping around the city on a shiny red bicycle and decked out in snazzy striped pants, answers a Help Wanted sign only to be rebuffed, even in clever disguise. But when Baker lands in bed, bruised and bumped from tripping over Pantaloon's misplaced bicycle, the remorseful pup swoops in to save the day by completing all the orders. Pantaloon is an overnight sensation with the customers, who clamor for his return. Baker pleads for Pantaloon to come back in letters on a giant cake in the store window, and they become "the two happiest bakers in the whole world." The final illustration, a coda to the text, bears a visual clue to Pantaloon's inevitable success. While the story line is slight and often contrived, the stylized, retro-looking full-color illustrations are snappy and appealing, and breathe new life into this classic for another generation. A worthy choice for storytime read-alouds.—Kathleen Finn, St. Francis Xavier School, Winooski, VT
