This was one of the cutest books I have read in recent times. It really made me want to go back in time to when I was a small girl. The story is so innocent and sweet and Millie is a delightful girl.
The story starts off when Millie moves from her cosy home to New York City!!! Learning to cope with this new change, she finds that her life will never be the same.
I was so glad to have joined Millie in her small journey. Mildred has done such a wonderful job. I want to recommend this book to all mums to share with their children. This is just something that has to be read out to a child and I guarantee that everyone will have a smile at the end of it!!!
One of the things which I really enjoyed and I was surprised was the quality of the illustrations!! They were really well done for a children's book!! I also found it easier to connect to the characters because of the illustrations.
I can't help saying it but Millie is one of the cutest kids I know of, and this book really brought a big wide smile to my face.

Millie and Cupcake by Mildred Potash is a wonderful story about cute little Millie and her pet Cupcake. The book is about the bonding between this little girl and her pet rat. The story brings out the personality traits of these two and how they love each other and how their presence in each other's lives bring out a noticeable change in their characters and behavior. Millie is a shy girl who wishes to have a pet of her own. Her parents get her a pet and that changes her world. The book has some good messages and lessons for the children.
The author has conceptualized the theme very well and put down a delightful story filled with lessons and morals required for children. The message to respect every living thing and being responsible for those around you has been put across subtly and beautifully for children to understand well. The illustrations in the book is another attractive feature which breathes life into the characters in the story and makes it easy for children to relate.
I liked the depth in the story because it has some excellent moral values and messages for kids. Parents can actually use this for reading at night and it can also be used in class rooms and libraries for read-aloud sessions. I always liked the idea of writing stories with a moral or a message for the children. It is so easy to make them understand things through books in a manner enjoyable to them.
