Synopsis

The Rascally Cake by Jeanne Willis, Korky Paul

The ghastly Mr Skumskins O'Parsley's favourite dishes include wormcast butties, squashed tadpoles on toast and bogey burgers. O'Parsley decides one day to bake an extra special cake, with more revolting ingredients than you can possibly imagine. However, when the cake decides to eat HIM, he realises it is time to mend his ways. The rollicking rhymes by Jeanne Willis are accompanied by Korky Paul's exuberant illustrations.

Reviews

Wonderfully horrid. Top juniors will love it! * School Librarian * A romp of a book. Guaranteed to appeal to the most reluctant of readers...children will relish the rhyming text, and will revel in the horrors of the anti-hero's kitchen. * Junior Education *
