Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Sprightly watercolors highlight this antic twist on ``The House That Jack Built,'' wherein a luscious confection falls into the wrong hands. Ages 4-8. (Sept.)
School Library Journal
PreS Robart adapts the cadence and rhythm of ``The House that Jack Built'' to her original cumulative verse. The cake in the title is a sumptuous treat, lavishly iced and decorated with candles, chocolate chips, and gumdrops. A colorful, full-page illustration faces each successive addition to the text. The basic enjoyment of the book comes from the attractive drawings and their perfect accompaniment to well written, repetitive phrases. The food chain describedfarmer, seed, corn, hen, egg, etc.begs to be read aloud. And what about Mack, who ate the cake? He provides a surprise ending that will delight audiences, for Mack is the farmer's large, playful dog. A welcome addition to picture book collections. Barbara C. Webber, Gordon-Barbour Elementary School, Gordonsville, Va.
