Praise For…

"Hamilton and Weiss (Noodleheads) bring a simple but outrageous tale alive. . . . Young readers will find it hard to resist Henry’s renditions of colorful cupcakes, pies, and cakes in bright and colorful hues."—School Library Journal

"Henry’s (Snow Is Fun) ink, watercolor, and acrylic paint cartoons have scoopfuls of comic pep and are as bright as a freshly iced confection. Hamilton and Weiss’s (the Noodleheads series) dialogue balloons offer the repetition nascent readers need, along with humor that should elicit knowing chuckles."—Publishers Weekly
