Synopsis

Ronny Rock Starring in Monster Cake Meltdown by Merryn Threadgould

Ronny Rock is a very, very lucky boy. Why is he lucky? Because he lives with his dad, Rock the Baker, and his dad's bakery is one of the most exciting places on the high street, if not the WORLD! Ronny loves nothing more than to watch his dad create extraordinary birthday cakes - fire-red racing cars, chocolate trains with candied angelica tracks and dancing mice so real it's hard to believe they are edible! One evening, Ronny's dad has gone out and Ronny is left with rambunctious teenage childminder, Kieran. After an energetic game of bun-pong (ping-pong with a stale bun), disaster strikes! Hidden underneath a flour sack is a mislaid cake order ...for the very next morning! When he can't reach his dad, Ronny takes it upon himself to bake the ultimate MONSTER CAKE for four-year-old Alfie Mealman's birthday, making it look like Kieran's old teacher Mr. Bunt - smelly, grimy, gloopy and greasy with giant ping-pong eyes. Eughhhhh! Now, that's a Monster Cake! Has Ronny saved the day? Or will it be ...a Monster Cake Meltdown!

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!
