Lulu and the Best Cake Ever by Emma Chichester Clark

Come on down to Wagtail Town where every day is an adventure! A brilliant new series for young children from the highly-regarded, award-winning creator of Blue Kangaroo, Emma Chichester Clark.

Lulu is a little dog with BIG ideas. So when the New Tricks School cake competition is announced she is sure she can make the best cake ever and WIN!

But when her cake doesn’t look quite like it should, it’s up to her best friend, Alfie, to remind her that there are more important things than winning…

My Review

Oooh La La! We absolutely loved Lulu and The Best Cake Ever. With it's fantastic, engaging storyline and wonderful, vibrant illustrations, it is definitely a winner. The pacing and length is brilliant for holding the attention of a 3 year old. My daughter paid so much attention she made her own words up and basically told the story back to me. :)

Lulu the little dog who just thinks she is the best at everything. She calls her best-friend Alfie to help her bake a cake for the cake baking competition. Even though she has never made a cake before, she thinks her cake will be the best cake ever.

She takes her cake along to the competition, there are loads of brilliant cakes that her friends have made. There can only be one winner and Lulu soon realises that you don't always have to win everything, as long as you take part and have fun. She also learns that there are just some things you will be better at doing than others.

A perfect book that I think everyone will love, children and adults alike. We will be reading this one again and again. I would definitely recommend this for the little one in your life.

A 5 star read
