We got a lovely book in the post called The Castle of Cupcakes by Lynn Bedford Hall (the food writer) and of course I couldn’t wait to get home and read it to Fysh, who by the way thoroughly enjoyed it.
It’s a story about Mattie who enters a secret dreamworld of animals every night, this time to join in on their baby show. All the animal moms wanted their kids to be the prettiest and best so they could win the grand prize, a magnificent cupcake castle but a nasty buffalo charged into the party and spoiled all the fun. Mattie saves the day and the show ends with a wonderfully happy celebration.
It’s also beautifully illustrated which you know is a thing for me and I’m adding it to my collection of illustrated books that inspire me to draw. Plus… CUPCAKES :P
