The Best Birthday Cake In The World - Book CoverMy book is about a mum who isn't very good in the kitchen. In all honesty, I guess I modeled this mum on myself. I've never been particularly good in the kitchen and have often set off the smoke alarm or served things to my family for dinner that our dogs wouldn't even touch. In the story her daughter, Ruby, finds a picture of the perfect birthday cake to take to school. Once again, this event was modeled on real life. I wonder if any other mums out there curse those 'Women's Day' birthday cake cook books. Throughout the story we learn how hard the mum tries to create the perfect cake, just like the picture. She works all night and eventually brings the cake to school on her daughters birthday. Although the cake isn't exactly the same as the picture, Ruby appreciates the effort her mother has made, making the cake that much more special.

 

About The Author

I am a music teacher, wife and mother of 3. While on maternity leave, I decided to have a go at writing a picture book. I love reading to my children and I thought it might be fun to read something that I had written to them. That has been the best part of this writing process. I love the delight in my children's faces when I read 'Mummy's book' and how they want me to read the dedication to them over and over again. Priceless!
