March 2018 Debut of the Month

A lovely story about cake, fair-play and making friends. Meet Quentin, a wolf with an unusual talent - he loves to bake. Cinammon buns, shortbread biscuits, fondant fancies, and especially chocolate cake, he loves making them all. There’s just one problem. He has no-one to share them with. All that changes when he receives an invitation to take part in a Bunny Bake-Off. Cleverly disguising himself with homemade bunny ears and nose, Quentin enters the tent. Despite an unsporting bit of sabotage, he’s on course to receive the trophy until a stray banana skin puts everything in jeopardy … Fortunately all ends happily, and Quentin makes lots of new friends. Ellie Snowdon’s gorgeous illustrations are full of humour and character, and catch all the tension of the bake-off too. Delicious! ~ Andrea Reece


Great Bunny Bakes by Ellie Snowdon

Aprons on, recipes at the ready - it's time for the biggest, bestest, bunniest baking competition. Only - who is this strangely dressed contestant?! Quentin is a wolf with a very unusual hobby. He loves to bake! So when he accidentally receives an invitation to take part in a Great Bunny Baking competition he'll do anything to enter. Masterfully disguised (ahem) as a bunny, Quentin sails through round after round with his peerless pastry and heavenly honeybun tower. But soon he has to contend with a jealous fellow contestant. And when he slips and drops his Showstopping Chocolate Cake it looks like all his work has been in vain . . . But all is not as it seems in this tale of hidden identity, bravura baking and unexpected kindness.

An irresitible picture book from fabulous new talent, Ellie Snowdon, with witty text and stunning classic-yet-contemporary illustrations.
