Publisher's Summary

Poor Bagel! He dreams of entering the Cherry Jubilee dance contest . . . but no one wants to be his partner! Can he find a sweet-tart who doesn't think his steps are half-baked? Bagel loved to dance. It made him happier than a birthday cake! And more than anything, he wants a partner who will spin and swirl, tap and twirl with him in the dance contest. But Pretzel sniffs that he doesn't cut the mustard, Croissant thinks his moves are stale, and Doughnut's eyes just glaze over. Can a cute cupcake save the day for our would-be Fred clair? Witty and pun-filled, this picture book really takes the cake.

This sweet and delicious book about a bagel looking for a dance partner is pretty cute and has fun illustrations, but it's just a little too punny for me. I'm usually a big fan of puns, but this book uses one in almost every sentence.
