Pantaloon is a poodle with a sweet tooth. He adores cookies and yummy pastries. So when the Baker is looking for a helper, Pantaloon applies for the job.

“Oh, no, Pantaloon!” says the Baker. “You look to me as if you’d eat more than you’d bake.” But Pantaloon proves him wrong in this charming Golden classic, brilliantly reillustrated by Steven Salerno.

From the Hardcover edition.

the baker's big chest expresses his cocksure attitude, while Pantaloon's small pink tongue gets a good workout amid the lavishly decorated pastries.

Youth Services Book Review

The baker is understandably hesitant to hire him, knowing about his sweet tooth but one day, the baker is laid up in bed (due to his tripping over Pantaloon’s bike which was just happened to roll in front of his door) and Pantaloon springs into action.
