"The roving (and ever growing) band of merry would-be bakers will bring smiles to small readers, who will rejoice in reciting the growing list of creatures and chiming in with their choral salutations of each new animal: "Good morning, neighbor." This endearing story's accumulation of animals, donations, and repetitive phrasing cleverly underscores (and embodies) the abundant, collaborative love of a tightknit community. Dek's watercolor illustrations evoke folk-art charm with their straightforward brush strokes, chunky caricatures, absence of perspective, and inherent warmth expressed through lovely details. Teamwork, sharing, and neighborly friendship emerge as integral ingredients in this sweet, satisfying book for young readers."
- Kirkus Reviews, Starred Review
"In this charming and cumulative tale, a small mouse is hungry for an omelet, but doesn't have an egg."
-School Library Journal
"This charming story is about friendship, sharing and how teamwork and compromise can bring big - and delicious - ideas to life. And it's a lovely reminder of the importance of breaking bread together and coming together as a community."
-Avery & Augustine
