Miss C loves animal picture books so she was very excited to receive The Carrot Cake Catastrophe from Parragon Books to review. This book is written by Elizabeth Dale and illustrated by Gemma Raynor.
This is a story about a rabbit called Jenny, who wants to make a special cake for her Mummy's birthday. Of course, a rabbit just has to have a carrot cake. Jenny and her Grandad prepare all the ingredients to make a carrot cake for Mummy but Grandad can't see very well when he keeps his reading glasses on so he confuses butter with soap and sugar with salt. The carrot cake doesn't turn out quite as expected!
This is a lovely story book and it is beautifully illustrated. It's an easy read and a great first reader book. Miss C loved all the pictures and saying, "that's not right!" when Grandad picked up the wrong thing to put in the cake.
I loved that the book includes the carrot cake recipe at the back and Miss C and I can't wait to try it and taste a proper carrot cake. We love to eat carrot cake in our house.
We received this book for the purposes of a review. The opinions expressed are my own.
