Ellie's Magical Bakery: A Royal Tea for Royalty

Publisher: Red Fox

Review

Paralympian Ellie Simmonds' series of short, funny, thoughtful, well-illustrated chapter books reflect her own outstanding victory over her disability, and highlight the current craze for baking! Ellie, recovering from the death of her father, but neglected and bullied by the uncle and aunt who disastrously took over her father's bakery, is supported by her friend Basil, her cat Whisk, and her magical fairy friend Victoria Sponge. 

Using her own baking, she enters her relatives' bakery in a national competition, meets the Queen, and discovers that she has made a new and surprising friend.

This will engage newly confident readers, with a well-judged proportion of illustration to text, which incorporates important life skills within a cheerfully unlikely but very engaging adventure.
