Description

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

‘Do you know the story of how the Earth was made of cake? It happened a long time ago, when aliens learned to bake.’

Set on planet Cookie Dreams, after years of eating nothing but biscuits, a little alien called Zappo's mum discovers how to bake delicious cakes. Soon all the mums are creating spectacular cakes, but they become competitive about who can bake the best cakes, so Zappo’s headteacher decides to put them to the test. A cake off date is set, but what happens next is out of this world!

This messy tale, full of weird and wonderful characters, is an enthralling story to share with children as they’re swept along with the aliens who create more than they bargained for! This picture book will quickly become a modern bedtime classic that will be enjoyed time and time again.

The Great Alien Cake Off is perfect for a child to read with others or alone. It’s bound to get them excited about reading!

Guide age range: 6-12 years.

Made with paper & love, from you to me.
