The Lovereading4Kids comment

In a Nutshell: comedy – chaos – pug cooking! A perfect piece of comic writing for children, Pugly Bakes a Cake is certain to be a huge favourite with young readers. Pugly is a pug with great ideas and when he decides to make a cake he’s determined it will be the best ever. What he lacks in skill he makes up for in enthusiasm, but his big mistake is to listen to Clem the cat who, as readers will quickly realise, is out to get him into trouble. The story unfolds at a breathy, pug-snuffly pace as Pugly causes more and more chaos, ending up trapped in the cat-flap and weeing helplessly. Smart design adds to the fun and Gemma Cowell is a pug illustrator par excellence! ~ Andrea Reece

The Editor at Nosy Crow says: “Everyone knows that pugs are the best dogs around and Pugly is the best pug ever! He thinks way beyond the back garden and while this can get him into trouble, he has a lot of fun too!”

About the Author

Pamela Butchart

As a child, Pamela Butchart was lucky enough to grow up in a house full of pets, have a mum and dad who were bonkers, and go to The Best Most Awesome Primary School in the WorldTM. As a student, Pamela's student jobs included: fishwife, teaching basketball in America, phlebotomist, and Artist Liaison for a (really bad) Abba tribute band. Now, Pamela teaches philosophy to teenagers and spends all day pondering questions such as, 'Is time travel possible?' and 'How do I know I'm not really a robot?' The stories write themselves really...Pamela lives in Dundee with her husband, Andy, and their two cats, Bear & Carlos. Carlos only has one eye and is Pamela's hero.
