Ellie’s Magical Bakery: Best Cake for a Best Friend

Publisher: Red Fox

Review

Since Ellie's Dad died, her grumpy, smelly aunt and uncle have run the village bakery very badly but they are such a pair of bullies that they still manage to win the village bake-off every year. They also pick on Ellie and think she is stupid just because she is small (she has a condition called achondroplasia) which couldn't be further from the truth.

When Ellie gets a mysterious, magical birthday present, she hopes things will change and, with the help of her new friend, Basil, and her cat, Whisk, gets to work on some serious baking.

This small-format chapter book for newly-independent readers is thoughtfully presented and packed with brilliant pen and ink illustrations to entice and entertain young readers.
