One of the best children's picture books I've read in a long time:
Pa Brindle blew the cobwebs off the trunk, then threw it open -- and all the cats in the neighborhood opened one eye....
"I'll be good this time," Pa promised. "One big piece of Sweet Dream Pie, that's all I want."
"Well then...I'll make it, and you help," Ma agreed. "But if things get out of hand, don't blame me."
