Kid Review: The Magic Cake Shop

Kid Review: The Magic Cake Shop

The Magic Cake Shop

When ten-year-old Emma Burblee’s beautiful but snobbish parents banish her to Nummington for the summer with her loathsome Uncle Simon, she is befriended by the seemingly magical town baker, Mr. Crackle, who soon becomes a target of Simon and his associate.

I loved this book because it was about baking. Even though it was fiction, it had a wonderful storyline to it. I hope that people can read it all the time and it gets put in my school library!! Girls and boys, request and read this book. Yes, it was that good!!
