Shortlisted for the Waterstones Children’s Prize 2018
There’s a smell I can’t ignore.
It’s wafting through the kitchen door.
It’s time for me to find out more.
I think it might be cake.
How do you resist the most amazing cake ever? Especially when your mum has left a note saying that you MUST NOT eat the cake?
This wonderful rhyming text from Simon Philip, author of You Must Bring a Hat, is illustrated with huge energy and humour by Lucia Gaggiotti.
Filled with short, punchy rhyming text and playful pages experimenting with font size, this is a brilliant, giddy read aloud.
The rhyming text in this story is easy to read aloud and coupled with the humour in the pictures it’s a very amusing read.
I Really Want the Cake is a delight – pure joy from start to finish
