Book Poor, part 6

We like books.  We have lots of books.  So many, in fact, we decided not to pack them away when we relocated.  We didn't even bring any kids' books to Athens.  We knew we would buy books in Greece.  Lots and lots of books.
Richard Scarry's Favorite Storybook Ever also comes from the box of books sent by my mother.

M loves Richard Scarry, but we'd never read most of the stories found in this book.  I really don't know how that's possible, but we'll take it.  Below is M's favorite.  He was still giggling when he told Z about it later.  Humperdink the baker has a loaf of bread that says "mamma!"  He calls the police, but...

...everyone but Lowly Worm is too scared to solve the mystery.  We won't spoil the ending for you, but just know:  it's really silly.
