It’s the middle of the night, but little pat-a-cake baby wants to bake a special cake and does, with the help of three laughing, mischievous baby helpers. And what fun they have – mixing the ingredients, whisking, stirring, sieving and shaking. The story is told in rhyme that is real fun to read aloud, and Polly Dunbar’s illustrations are full of life. As the little bakers dance and frisk across the pages, it’s impossible not to feel as light-hearted and joyful as they look. The story concludes with the cake baked and on a plate, with a slice for you, and a slice for me – and a slice for the Moon, who turns up for tea. Delicious! ~ Andrea Reece
