Bakers on Board is an adorable middle grade novel girls are sure to love. It’s a fun adventure for the Peace, Love, and Cupcakes crew and a terrific example to young girls to believe in themselves and their skills. Even though this book comes in the middle of the series, I had no trouble picking up where it began. One of my favorite parts was the references to the Pirates of the Carribean movies. Especially since I read this on a road trip where my kids were watching one of the series (completely by accident). It was a fun match. I do think this is best suited to 3rd-5th-grade girls than middle-grade readers. While there weren’t any pictures the girls personalities, maturity, and the length of the book seem better suited to that average group.
Bakers on Board is the eighth book in The Cupcake Club Series and it tells Jenna's side of the story. Jenna's step-dad Leo, comes home with the news of everyone in the family is going on a cruise for his job until half of the family comes down with chicken pox. Leo makes Jenna a deal that if PLC can make 12,000 cupcakes then they can come along for the ride, they accept the job offer but soon regret it as they spend all their time in the kitchen. With a rainstorm threatening all of their hard work and with Jenna's sister keeping a secret from everyone, the ending will surly delight everyone. As I read more of the Cupcake Club, I truly believe this is a great series for young kids and even adults. I do wish they would put out a cookbook of all the recipes that are in these books so everyone can enjoy the recipes that are included. The more I read this series, I could totally see it being a TV series that will do good since it has a strong message for kids to do good and safe enough for everyone in the family to watch. Thank You to Sheryl & Carrie Berk for writing yet another fantastic book in this series!! I received this book from the Publisher via NetGalley in exchange for a honest review.
