KIRKUS REVIEW

A borrowed, undeveloped fantasy within a cutesy lesson within a wee non-story--featuring cute old Missy Tilly, who bakes good bread for Mr. Simon's general store. When Mr. Simon needs more bread he sends a duck to Missy Tilly's house with the message. Then we see Missy Tilly making her bread, meanwhile explaining the procedure to the waiting duck. As Missy Tilly naps while the bread rises, her ""yeasty beasties"" get out of hand and the dough goes flowing through the village. But my goodness, that was only a dream, and Missy Tilly's bread comes out as good as ever. The story is all air bubbles, and too sticky to handle.
