The Great Cake
Published: 2012 by Walker Books
Level: Early Years (R-2)
Harvey wants to bake a cake but his mother says they don't have the ingredients. Each time Harvey "bakes" a cake anyway, using his imagination. Together he, his mum and baby, then find what the cake could be for.... snails, lizards, butterflies! Eventually he gets to make the cake and we get the recipe too. Yum! The repetitive text is fun especially when we see the ingredients illustrated. The illustrations were created with stencils and woodblocks.
