Book
In this bedazzling picture book for all seasons, a Witch is once again alone on her birthday. So she uses her powers to bake a Cake Girl to act as her servant for the day. She tells Cake Girl to sing and dance—and do all the housework! “And then,” says the Witch, “I’ll eat you.” But Cake Girl proves to be too clever a confection for such a fate, and she soon turns the tables on her maker, with happy results for them both.

Cheery and cheeky themes abound in this deliciously illustrated story about the magic of laughter and play and new companions.

Praise for Cake Girl

“Lucas has a trick of moving his frames, allowing his pen-and watercolor artwork to dance outside the borders, and with all manner of stars, mementos, and symbols whirling through the pages, there’s plenty to look at. A visual treat.” —Booklist  

“Sweetly surreal.” —Kirkus Reviews

“Lucas (Halibut Jackson) writes and paints with quiet affection for his characters.” —Publishers Weekly
