Pantaloon -written by Kathryn Jackson & illustrated by Steven Salerno published by Golden Books (Random House), 2010.
"Delicious! ...Salerno's lively and colorful new illustrations for a 1951 text show the adventures of Pantaloon, a poodle who can never get enough of those baked-and-iced things!" -Kirkus Reviews
NOTE: This new version of Pantaloon is a remake of the popular 1951 Little Golden Books title of the same name, which originally was illustrated by Leonard Weisgard.
Pantaloon is a poodle with a sweet tooth, and when the Baker places a HELP WANTED sign in the bakery window he applies for the job... but things don't go well at all. However Pantaloon is very persistent!
