A cat up a tree? No problem once our humble hero wields his trusty, crusty baguette. An alligator on the loose from the zoo? A robbery? A stalled parade? No challenge is too great or too small for Monsieur Saguette and his amazing baguette. But what will happen when this unflappable Frenchman finds himself in danger?

PreSchool-Grade 1–In a series of highly improbable scenarios, Mr. Saguette performs daring feats–rescuing a stranded cat from a tree, foiling an attacking alligator and a robber, and escaping from a flooding sewer in the nick of time. In each instance, his trusty baguette provides a handy solution to the impending disaster. After the eventful walk home, Monsieur Saguette consumes his baguette with relish. For those who can suspend disbelief and see it for the spoof it is, this wacky tale with its kid-pleasing humor is sure to elicit giggles. Asch's computer-generated illustrations with their whimsical, flowing lines and soft pastel colors are the perfect accompaniment to this lighthearted romp through the streets of Paris. Bon appétit! –Laurie Edwards, West Shore School District, Camp Hill, PA
