Synopsis

Rude Cakes by Rowboat Watkins

Who knew that cakes were so rude?! In this deliciously entertaining book, a not-so-sweet cake—who never says please or thank you or listens to its parents—gets its just desserts. Mixing hilarious text and pictures, Rowboat Watkins, a former Sendak fellow, has cooked up a laugh-out- loud story that can also be served up as a delectable discussion starter about manners or bullying, as it sweetly reminds us all that even the rudest cake can learn to change its ways.

Reviews

In very few words and completely without preaching, Rude Cakes lets us laugh our way through a lesson on social skills and self reflection. -Wink Books

About the Author

Ever since he could remember, Rowboat Watkins (yes, a pen name) was attracted to those stories that broke the rules and made him look at things differently. To his way of thinking, young readers of today are already safely swaddled in the soft abundance of conventional stories most grown-ups want them to hear. Rowboat spent time as a student of the illustrious Mr. Sendak, so his stories of fantasy and imagination not only do not fear the 'darker' side of childhood, they embrace it and continue to challenge established ideas of what literature for young children should be. Rowboat Watkins lives in an old brown home with a brown-eyed dog and a bright-eyed girl with long brown hair. Hes older than you can count on his fingers, toes, and teeth, and to this day no one knows why his wife calls him Rowboat . . . but she does. Thats all 100% true. Anything else you might have heard is hogwash.

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.

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.
