LoveReading View on Cake

Sue Hendra has an extraordinary ability to connect directly with the very young, and a real skill too for investing the unlikeliest things – vegetables, socks, and now a cake – with proper personality. Cake is really excited to receive a party invitation – he’s never been to a party before and doesn’t know what to expect. Readers of course, even the very littlest, know just what a cake’s role at a birthday party is and while they’ll be giggling at his preparations, they’ll be feeling a growing sense of apprehension too! Fortunately, there’s a twist in the tale and Cake escapes to enjoy more happy returns. The illustrations are eye-catching and bold, and this is a book that will be read and enjoyed time and time again. ~ Andrea Reece 


Cake Synopsis

Cake has been invited to a party. He's very excited! He's never been to a birthday party before. And he doesn't know what to expect. But as the candles on his party hat begin to burn and the other party guests start to sing, Cake starts to think that this is one party he'd rather not be at . . .

Introducing an irresistibly loveable character, Cake is a brilliantly funny story from the award-winning creators of Supertato, I Need A Wee and Barry the Fish With Fingers. Sue Hendra and Paul Linnet fans will be roaring their support for this delightful picture book hero!
