IPPY award for The Great Alien Cake Off

Share this delightful story with a child and get them excited about reading and involved in this new story, discovering how the Earth was made of cake.

Set on planet Cookie Dreams where all the aliens live on biscuits, until a little alien called Zappo and his school friends discover and fall in love with cake.  All the alien parents think they can bake the best cakes, so Zappo’s head teacher decides to put them to the test.  A cake off date is set, but what happens next is out of this world!

A fantastical rhyming picture book set in outer space where aliens get a little carried away with their new-found love of cakes and baking.

This messy tale, full of weird and wonderful characters, is an enthralling story to share with children as they are swept along with the aliens who create more than they bargained for!

Written by Rachel McCoubrie and wonderfully illustrated by Robert McPhillips, this picture book will quickly become a modern bedtime classic that will be enjoyed and shared time and time again.

The Great Alien Cake Off is a gift to read with any child or for them to share with other close friends and family.

Made with love, from you to me.

COVID 19 UPDATE: The books we make and print for you are taking slightly longer to produce, so again, please order as early as you can and we are doing our best to get these made as fast as we can. Normally it is 5 working days, but currently because of the social distancing and reduction in printing staff, these can now take up to 2 weeks. We are really sorry but will do our best to speed these through.

Any order for items kept in stock will be dispatched within 48 hours (Monday to Friday), although we do aim to get them out on the same day where possible, using First Class Royal Mail services.

Any order for items that are printed especially for you, take five working days to be created, printed and bound before they are shipped using a Tracked Mail service (UK only) or First Class Royal Mail services (delivery outside the UK). If you are purchasing a personalised item for a specific event, please allow sufficient time for your item to be created, printed, bound and delivered to your chosen destination.

If you have ordered a stock plus an item that is printed especially for you, please note these are usually shipped separately so you may receive two parcels.

We aim to keep our delivery charges as low as possible. Full pricing information on ordering more than one item or for delivery outside the UK can be found in the Delivery & Returns section.
