Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Eleanor Heldrich
Maisy, a white English mouse wearing a blue apron to protect her clothing, goes through seven careful and familiar steps on seven double-page spreads to bake a cake for her friend Charley, an alligator. First, she washes her hands by way of a pull tab that moves her front paws back and forth over a sink. Next she opens a cupboard to assemble the ingredients. "Then she carefully weighs and measures what she needs" on a scale that moves up and down when another tab is pulled. To mix the dry ingredients and add three eggs, another pull tab makes her arm go back and forth as she stirs. When the cake is in the oven, the reader can make the cake rise by pulling down on the oven door. An enchanting reaction to the pull-tab on the next page allows Maisy to shake powdered sugar on top of the finished cake. Then it is time for Charley to eat a piece of cake! Significant words such as flour, butter, sugar, scales, measuring cups, mixing bowl, and eggs are separately illustrated on pages where they are used. Everything is perfectly pitched to an audience of two years old and up that will enjoy learning how a cake is made and delight in the noteworthy movable actions engineered by David Hawcock.

    Pretty good

    My 3-year-old son really likes this book. It has cute and interactive aspects such as pull tabs and motion makers, which he loves, as well as a quickly gratifying storyline, and he requests the book often. I have to say though that, as a grownup and as a former professional baker, I would have preferred a book about baking a cake to be a little more fantastic and lushly illustrated--immediately censoring myself of course because that is not what the Maisy books are typically all about! But anywho, this book's illustrations, plot, and text are pretty basic. Further, the denouement on the last page is pretty unexpected and abrupt.
