With a singsong rhythm, comical illustrations, and a down-home flavor, Dayle Ann Dodds and John Manders serve up a humorous lesson in multiplication.

Down on the farm one morning, Papa McFay orders his sons to hop to their chores. But from Minnie's kitchen wafts a smell that gets the boys itchin', and one by one, they succumb to the call of that sweet aroma. Each brother arrives at Minnie's twice as hungry as his brother before — and looking for twice as much grub. Now what will happen when Papa McFay finds out his sons are gone and the chores are not done? The boys will be in double trouble for sure!

Baker & Taylor
Rhyming tale of five boys and their father who forget about their chores on the farm to enjoy Minnie's good cooking, each requesting double what the previous one ordered.

& Taylor

Smelling the tempting treats cooking on the griddle in Minnie's kitchen, one brother after the next find their way to her diner where they eat their fill, but when their father checks on them and sees that no one is working the farm, the brothers know that they are all going to be in big trouble, in an easy-to-read introduction to multiplication.
