About the Book



A story about a rude cake who never says please or thank you or listens to its parents, and a Giant Cyclops who is polite.



Book Synopsis



2016 Ezra Jack Keats Book Award - New Illustrator Honor
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.

I purchased this book for my 4 year old after reading a recommendation for it in Parents Magazine. We love it! A cute little lesson on manners with adorable pictures. I think kids age 4-8 would enjoy it most.
