A Piece of Cake

Written by Jill Murphy

Illustrated by Jill Murphy

Part of the Large Family Series

A Piece of Cake Synopsis

A modern picture book classic about the best-loved Larges, in the series that includes Five Minutes' Peace, A Quiet In and All in One Piece. In this funny and brilliantly observed story from Jill Murphy's bestselling Large series, Mrs Large is feeling a tiny bit wibbly-wobbly - so decides to put the whole family on a diet! Biscuits and crisps are out, healthy meals and jogs are in. But for hungry elephants, dieting is definitely not a piece of cake... Just what will happen when Granny sends them something delicious in the post?

A Piece of Cake Press Reviews

Family life is beautifully observed with a humour that appeals to both adult and child. * The Daily Telegraph *
