Synopsis

The barnyard rooster 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 black hen, milk from the spotted cow, butter churned from fresh cream, and firewood for the stove. Will Jack ever get his pancake?
With his trademark vibrant collage illustrations and a lively text, Eric Carle has created a mouthwatering tale for young readers.
