Cake

Publisher: Macmillan

Cake is delighted when he receives his first ever party invitation. Keen to look his best, he buys a special new hat for the occasion which, according to the shop assistant, makes him look irresistible.

Cake excitedly skips off to the party, where he has a great time and thoroughly enjoys the dancing and games. However, he begins to feel uneasy when the other guests advance on him, singing ‘Happy Birthday’ – and it dawns on him that being a cake at a birthday party may not end well for him…

Observant readers will spot a variety of undercover party food dotted throughout the tale, keeping an eye on proceedings. Lots of humour, vibrant illustrations and a sparkly front cover combine to create an enjoyable picture book, which will have children giggling in anticipation as they wait to discover Cake’s fate.
