Grandpa Wollemi’s Birthday

Another big and beautiful book by Edward Benn, Grandpa Wollemi’s Birthday doesn’t disappoint.  Beautifully illustrated in naïve style by Cynthia Barnett, this adorable story is about a child wanting to make something for Grandpa’s birthday.

Everyone is excited because it’s Grandpa Wollemi’s birthday.  Kauri has made him a present and Myrtle has made him a present, but Cedro just can’t think what to give him.  That is, until he remembers that Grandpa has a sweet tooth and decides to make him a birthday cake, all by himself. The simple egg-free recipe and how-to is described in the story so that readers will know how to make one themselves (with adult supervision of course 🙂 ).

Absolutely delicious!
