Having eaten too much cake and drunk too much punch at Nick’s birthday party, Marvin has sees a strange thing in the sky.

Is it because he comes from Chicago or is there something more mysterious about him? 

Marvin Redpost 6: A Flying Birthday Cake? Synopsis

Marvin cannot get to sleep. It's late, the ground is hard in Nick Tuffle's garden, he is far too full on cake and he has drunk too much punch. Then he hears a low humming noise. He feels the earth shudder beneath him and there is a bright flash - sort of the same colour as the green icing on Nick's birthday cake. Is he dreaming or was that a flying birthday cake, candles aglow? Perhaps something much stranger is on the horizon...

But he deserves to be just as famous and popular for his many other books which display his hallmark qualities of warmth, empathy and understanding of all kinds of young readers but especially those whose lives have gone a bit awry.
