But when she tries too hard to make everyone happy, she crumbles under the pressure and realizes that sometimes just being yourself is enough.

Praise for Everyone Loves Cupcake

“This tempting treat will satisfy young readers' craving for laughs.” —School Library Journal

“Undeniably, unabashedly charming in its whimsy and wordplay, this fluffy-and-delicious-as-buttercream story delivers laughs by the baker's dozen. Wight's detailed but utterly straightforward digital illustrations are the real source of giggles, using expressive anthropomorphized baked goods to enchanting effect. Saturated pinks and blues grounded by the browns of breads across full-page spreads make for frothy visual fun, and the supplemental details, including sly nods to the book's companion piece, Everyone Loves Bacon, guarantee laughs across age groups...a tasty confection of a story, sweet, silly, and indulgent—and worth every bite.” —The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

“A sweet follow-up to DiPucchio and Wight's Everyone Loves Bacon (2015).As in its predecessor, humorous, food-based wordplay abounds in the clever text...Throughout, Wight's illustrations augment the humor with clever touches...A picture-book treat.” —Kirkus Reviews
