Mickey is a toddler who dreams of floating out of his pajamas and into a bowl of batter in the night kitchen. This is where, we learn, bakers bake until dawn “so we can have cake in the morn.” The bakers don’t seem to mind they are now baking up a Mickey cake, but suddenly Mickey pokes through the batter and jumps out and into the bread dough. There, he pounds the dough until it turns into an airplane. He flies into a jug of milk, then slides down the side, and gets back into bed all “cakefree and dried.”
In The Night Kitchen is written and illustrated by Maurice Sendak (Where The Wild Things Are).
