Praise

“This book contains the perfect recipe for fun. The watercolor illustrations are impeccable. . . This humorous book would be ideal for a storytime reading.”–School Library Journal

“Malbrough’s watercolor illustrations are full of charmingly zany details, from dapper Marigold’s polka-dot bow tie to the chocolate splatters after the birds take over the cake making, and the creatures’ over-the-top facial expressions amp up the comedy. Playful rhymes and surprising page turns make this a great pick for a group storytime, and the comical ending . . . will be a valuable one for kiddos.”–Booklist

“Debut talent Malbrough celebrates the act of culinary creation and the joy of being absorbed in a personal passion—and, like the best desserts, he doesn’t let his story get too sweet. In one of many lovely watercolor spreads, Marigold blends glossy curls of shaved chocolate and a ribbon of molasses into the batter. . . Doing what one loves, Malbrough shows, makes it possible to transcend even the basest instincts.”–Publishers Weekly

“Clever text  follows the illustrations around the page, swirling with chocolate shavings and molasses as Marigold mixes his batter. The lush, textured watercolors match the energy of the story . . . Kids will giggle over the antics of both cat and birds during readalouds and will find plenty of humorous details to discover in the illustrations on their own.”–BCCB
