"I have always wanted to write a picture book biography for children and thought deeply about a famous person whose life had not been written about yet. While at my local supermarket, I admired the Entenmann's display table, and whoosh, the idea of who the person was behind the famous bakery name was born!" said Amy Salinger, author of William Entenmann: A Baker's Baker. "Plus, I grew up on Entenmann's pastries and cookies, so the idea had an even more special meaning for me."
