From the Publisher:
As he sets out for the store, a little boy's mother reminds him, "Six farm eggs, a cake for tea, a pound of pears, and don't forget the bacon". He has forgotten everything but the bacon, though, when he returns. Full color.
As he sets out for the store, the boy's mother reminds him, "Six farm eggs, a cake for tea, a pound of pears, and don't forget the bacon."
On his way, he repeats, "Six fat legs...a cape for me...a flight of stairs...and don't forget the bacon." Or was it "six clothes pegs...a rake for leaves...a pile of chairs...and don't forget the bacon"?
Well, at least he was sure to remember the bacon!
