I have been wanting to read this book for a long time. Hoping that one day I would be able to read it, and today I was finally able to get this book and read it. Yay!
This book is about rude cakes, well, especially one in particular it seems. A little child cake. He/she doesn’t seem to be the happiest. Never says thank you. Please? What is that word? Doesn’t listen to his/her parents. Steals stuff (because why ask). And much more.
I have to say I was a bit disappointed. I thought ALL the cakes were rude, but instead this is just one little cake that has a pissy attitude. His parents and other cakes and other food related stuff seem to be nice and kind. I know the author writes it as they, but the only cake I see being rude is a tiny little pink cake. Plus given the ending, it must have been only one cake. 🙁
But I still enjoyed the story, especially with that ending. I didn’t expect that to happen, and I had a laugh. That sure ought to learn that cake a little lesson about how to be kind, friendly, and how to treat people.
The art is my favourite part of the whole book. The expressions of the cakes (and other food stuff) are perfection. But I also love the little details that can be found in the illustrations (like the poster in the bedroom). Oh, and now that I read the book, the cover is even better than before I read the book. 🙂
So yeah, I enjoyed this book, but I had expected more rude cakes.
