Princess Arabella loved her recent birthday party so much that she wishes she could have another one. Thankfully, Grandma’s birthday is just days away. Arabella and her friends want to give Grandma a special gift, so each child sets to work on making the biggest, yummiest cake ever.
With a little help from his mum, Prince Mimoun proudly bakes his masterpiece, while Princess Sophie has a secret taste of her strawberry-flavoured mixture, and Princess Ling creates a delicious Chinese cherry cake. Grandma is thrilled with her spectacular birthday treats, and cannot wait to try a slice of each – but Princess Arabella’s offering contains an unexpected surprise!
A joyful, multi-ethnic tale in the Princess Arabella series, with vibrant illustrations.
