"At the Little Bitty Bakery, the pastry chef was beat-from her powdered sugar nose, to her flour dusted feet." When a pastry chef works straight through her birthday with no time to celebrate, some industrious mice decide to cook her up a scrumptious birthday surprise. It's a happy day, indeed, for the baker when she discovers their delicious secret!

This perfect read aloud is enhanced by a glittered jacket, delicious recipes, and Caldecott Honoree Betsy Lewin's timeless illustrations that bring a lovable cast of characters to life.

About the Author

Leslie Muir is a writer, painter and poet. She is also a very adventuresome amateur chef (although she has never knowingly cooked alongside a mouse). Leslie lives in Atlanta, Georgia with her computer geek husband, two high-spirited sons, and a large German Shepherd who will eat any type of crumble jumble. This is her third book for children.

Betsy Lewin is a New York Times best-selling illustrator and has garnered many awards, including a silver medal from the Society of Illustrators, a Caldecott Honor for Click, Clack, Moo; Cows ThatType, and an Honor for the first ever Ted Geisel Award given by the ALA for the book she illustrated, Cowgirl Kate and Cocoa. She lives with her husband in a brownstone in Brooklyn, where they share studio space, and their cat, Sophie, can usually be found napping on their drawing table.
