Sanji and the Baker

Sanji lives above a baker's shop. Every morning, he steps on to his balcony and enjoys the delicious aroma of freshly-baked breads and pastries. But the Baker is a mean-spirited, greedy and selfish man. 'Thief!' he cries at Sanji's door. 'You are stealing my smells!' Poor Sanji is taken to court to pay a hefty fine. How will the Judge make sure the Baker gets what he deserves? The riveting story is great to read aloud and Korky Paul's illustrations take to you to an exotic faraway location. With its clever courtroom-drama finale, this is a book that children will just love to hear over and over again.

Promotional Information

As enticing and mouthwatering as the aroma of freshly-baked bread - this is a great cautionary tale!


K-Gr 4‘Sanji travels the world until the day he happens upon the city of Fratsia. He finds a place to live above the baker's shop, where tempting smells fill the air. Day after day, morning and evening, Sanji stands on his balcony and enjoys the delicious aroma of cinnamon buns, fresh bread, and tasty cakes. When he refuses to pay the baker for the smells he is "stealing," the angry man takes Sanji to court. The judge directs Sanji to return with five silver coins. The next morning, Sanji throws the coins into a copper bowl one at a time. The judge then asks the baker, "Did you hear those coins clatter and clink? ...that was your payment." The illustrations are rendered in an exaggerated manner reminiscent of those in Mad Magazine with a sort of Middle Eastern setting. Grinning camels and a strange mix of characters (Sanji borrows money from a pirate, a wizard, and what appear to be the author and illustrator) reinforce the wacky story line while providing added visual interest. This book serves up just desserts and laughter suitable for school-age storytime and independent reading.-Susan M. Moore, Louisville Free Public Library, KY

This excellent combination of writer and illustrator...Paul's pictures are atmospheric, detailed and funny * Independent on Sunday *
