This is a crazy childrens book about a boy named Mickey, who we first meet attempting to go to sleep in his bed. However, a racket below his room prevents him from falling asleep. After asserting himself and yelling at whoever is making the noises to keep quite, he falls out of bed. He falls through the dark of his house, out of his pajamas, and ends up falling right into a bowl of cake batter in the night kitchen (a dream inspired city, with buildings made of food products), where three fat bakers make the "morning cake." The bakers mistake Mickey for milk, and mix him into the batter along with other ingrediants. After thoughouly stirring him in the cake, the bakers put the bowl of batter in the oven. Luckily, Mickey pops out and jumps into a pile of bread dough. He fashions an airplane with it, and takes off determined to get the bakers milk. It just so happens that one of the buildings is a giant milk bottle. Mickey dives in, and pours some real milk into the cake below him. With everything straightened out, Mickey jumps off the milk bottle and floats back into his pajamas and into bed, where he finally falls asleep.
This is a weird story that may seem strange to adults, but all kids seem to love. On the whole, if you're tired of reading the same old story to your kids each night, this is the book for you.
