The baby wants breakfast so Malcolm gets out of bed to get started. Then in comes Toby. And Una and Toto, then Alice—they’re hungry too. And Conrad from next door and his sister Ruby! Everyone has a request for breakfast. But who is taking notice of the baby?

The Longest Breakfast is a fun stroy full of comings and goings with a lovely baby at the centre.

by Sarah Wilkins & Jenny Bornholdt

I whizzed through the book, I drizzled through the drawings, I sizzled and word swam and got hooked. – Paula Green, Poetry Box

The story rolls back and forth like a good natured tug-of-war with the ever-increasing cast of characters and general chaos of a busy family home. – Magpies

This extremely lovely picture book lends itself to tonnes of re-readings, and there is more to think about each time. – The Spinoff
