Description

Dessert Schneider has her very own personal style. But sometimes walking to the beat of her own drum means walking right into a heap of mischief, especially when it comes to the legendary family recipe (and Dessert's all-time favorite treat), Grandma Reine's Double-Decker Chocolate Bars. As the oldest in a rambunctious, restaurant-owning family of six, Dessert seems to be better at getting into trouble than getting out of it. And that's because, for this eight-year-old, saying sorry is definitely not a piece o'cake In a starred review Publishers Weekly writes, "Readers will be left craving a second helping." Look to the right for more on book two.
