Cake Girl by David Lucas

Lucas, David. Cake Girl. Farrar, Straus and Giroux, 2009. $15.95. EL-ADVISABLE. Samantha, Public Librarian. It was her birthday and the Witch was alone. So the Witch baked herself a Cake Girl and made her sing, dance, and do whatever the Witch wished. The Cake Girl asked the Witch if she was going to have a birthday party. The Witch said she wasn’t because she didn’t have any friends. The Cake Girl offers to be the Witch’s friend if she’ll be nice. The Witch learns how to be nice and the two have a magically good time together. The wickedly tasty illustrations are delightful. EL-ADVISABLE. Samantha, Public Librarian.
