This book really made me laugh. It has a kind of ‘in your face front cover’ with a jubilant cake on the front and simply titled Cake you really want to read it.
It’s a multi layered book as everyone in the family will enjoy it-from little ones with the bold pictures to grown-ups probably making some predictions before it’s even started as to what might happen.
Cake has been invited to a party and isn’t sure what adornment to wrap around himself. After lovely pages illustrating deliberations Cake plumps for the simple Birthday Cake ‘look’. He is very excited when he gets there but things begin to look a little bit more sinister for Cake as Cake realises that his future might not be very secure at the end of the party. Luckily Cake has some kind and heroic ‘foodie friends’ who set up a Cake escape.
The pictures are bold, colourful and humorous with a simple font making the short sentences easy to read. It would be a grand book for sharing and a lovely book for a Foodie topic with KS1. The comedy cake caper sits really well with its previous book ‘Supertato’ – all children will have had experience of both these food items so you can’t go wrong with a funny book about this sweet treat!
