A magical children’s book, beautifully illustrated with cakes.
This wonderful children’s book captivated my three year old granddaughter’s imagination straight away.
As soon as you see the front cover you just know that this book is going to be something different, but it isn’t until you start turning the pages and entering the magical world of fairy tales that you realise just how wonderful it is.
Enchantingly, it is written in rhyme and very uniquely illustrated. The author’s passion behind the book is evident, not only in its content, but also by the fact that the story is illustrated in cakes, icing and frosting! On the front cover and throughout every page, all the settings and figurines for the different parts of the story were hand made by her, and were real, delicious cakes.
Haven’t we all wished we were in a fairy tale, having adventures in a magical place, and that we could be a princess, meet a unicorn, fly in a hot air balloon, or sail the seas with pirates?
Well in this story a little girl and her puppy travel into fairy tales. There they meets mythical creatures like mermaids and dragons, and visit classic immortal characters like Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. Then as the moon rises they travel with the Sandman into other children’s dreams, bringing them to life as well.
The fairy tales we hear as children stay with us throughout lives and deep down we never forget the magic of them, and the people who have read them to us. I really liked the size of the font, for children learning to read it is clear and encouraging, and also thought it is a wonderful introduction into the joy of poetry.
The authors loving childhood shines through in the writing and love she has put into creating incredible book. I am sure it will grace bookshelves, and be held by many little hands for years to come.
About the Book:
Flying on fairy wings, befriending a dragon, and being the captain of a pirate ship are just some of the adventures one little girl and her puppy discover as they climb into the pages of a fairy tale. Is the best part of their story swimming with mermaids? Enjoying a cup of tea with Snow White? Flying a hot air balloon? Or is it something even more magical? Each enchanting moment of this delightful tale is told on top of a cake. With every character, creature, and castle sculpted out of sugar and frosting, this is truly the sweetest fairy tale ever created!
