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.
