Incredibly creative and fun, kids will love looking at the pictures themselves. Some consider this book to be a coloring book.

Mesmerized with the illustrations in this wonderful little book. When my children were young, they were amazed that I was liberal enough to allow them to watch a naked baby boy float through the night kitchen. A favorite.

Surreal dreamtime book by the creator of <i>Where the Wild Things Are</i>. At bedtime, Mickey falls into the Night Kitchen where the bakers (who look a lot like Oliver Hardy, IMO) are baking the morning cake. This may sound scary, but it's not; Mickey escapes the bakers in a plane made of dough, swipes their measuring cup and flies to the Milky Way to gather some milk. Full of fun fantasy, this story will make little sense to adult minds, but I bet your children will love it! Challenged/banned for: depicting nudity and offensive language (I guess they mean the naked boy crowing "Cock-a-doodle-doo" at the end?! I can't find any offensive language in the book!).
