Bread! Bread! Bread! is a colorful children’s story set in Cape Town, South Africa, during World War II. Mama sends Tietie, the eldest of seven children, to the Indian store to fetch bread.
On her way to the store, Tietie finds that the bread truck has met with an accident. The bread truck driver is sitting at the side of a muddy road, his truck’s doors are wide open, and the bread has fallen onto a muddy street.
An excited thong of Tietie’s neighbors come to help and Tietie joins them. As a reward, she receives several loaves to take home to her family.
