When Snickerdoodle gets up before the rest of the family, he is thrilled to find one of Mom’s Famous Lemon Poppy Seed Cakes. Unfortunately it has a note on it that says "Do Not Touch." In this test of his willpower, Snickerdoodle will attempt to bend the rules, and it will not go well for him. But Snickerdoodle will also use his brainpower to devise a plan that just might save the day. A charismatic clan of chinchillas confronts everyday problems in this humorous story of family life and foibles.

Praise For Snickerdoodle Takes the Cake

"a realistic look at problem-solving and making things right."—Kirkus Reviews
"The colorful illustrations are large and the characters are animated. The size of the pictures and the small amount of text makes this a perfect book for young listeners. The anticipation of whether or not Snickerdoodle will touch the cake will delight children. A great selection for storytimes and one-on-one reads."—School Library Journal
"Soft digital lines give the whole chinchilla family touchably textured fur, and Mom's Famous Lemon Poppy Seed Cake looks luscious in pastel yellow and pink."—The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
