Cook-a-doodle-doo! By Janet Stevens (2005)

Big Brown Rooster is sick of chicken feed. So along with his friends–Turtle, Iguana, and Potbellied Pig–he sets out to make the most magnificent strawberry shortcake in the whole wide world. But there’s one problem: none of his friends knows how to cook! The team bravely forges ahead, and with Rooster’s help, they learn how to measure flour (not with a ruler) and how to beat an egg (not with a baseball bat). But can they keep Pig from gobbling up all the ingredients?
