Overview

A long time ago there lived over the waters, A Duchess, a Duke and their family of daughters.

Everything went smoothly and happily in this large family, until one day the Duchess decided to make: A lovely light luscious delectable cake.

Would she take the cook's advice? No, she would not. The Duchess put many things into the cake, adding the yeast six times for good measure. So the cake rose, and the Duchess with it -- and how were they to get her down again?

It is Gunhilde, the youngest of the daughters, who suggests a happy solution.

I had a vivid memory of this book, but couldn't remember the title or anything that helped me buy it for my daughters. Luckily, my sister found it cleaning out my parents' home. what a gift from my childhood! I only wish she were more well-known, and that I could get more that she's written.

This is a truly delightful book. When I was a little girl I used to check this book out almost everytime I went to the library. I'm happy to be able to share it with my daughter now.

Great fun for little ones, told in rhyme and line drawings reminiscent of medieval manuscripts. I used to read  this to groups of picture book age children and they loved it. They especially enjoyed the suspense and the  rhyme.  Highly recommended.
