Blurb; Hector is baking a cake for his Granny and he’s determined that it’s going to be perfect.
But when he discovers that the peanut butter jar is empty, Hector decides that he must head out to find some more, or else his perfect cake will be ruined.
As time begins to run out, Hector’s luck begins to run out too.
He may have to accept that sometimes, perfection just isn’t possible…
Charlotte’s (5) thoughts;
I liked the huge cake.
I liked the pictures (illustrations).
I liked the end of the story.
I would give it 100 stars.
It’s funny cause he’s chasing around for peanut butter.
I liked the SMASH!
It’s a good story and I enjoyed it a nrw favourite. I’m going to take it into school so all my class can read it together.
My thoughts as a parent;
Charlotte was made up to get her own signed book through the post and wanted to read it straight away. Ofcourse her younger brother Noah (2) joined us aswell. It’s a great, short story and illustrated beautifully. Kept us wondering if he ever did get the peanut butter. Kept the kids busy and quiet! I’m sure this will be a new favourite in our house as we all love chocolate cake here.
It also teachers a lesson that I don’t think Charlotte understood… It’s okay for things not be perfect! They’re still loved and appreciated just as much. With thanks to the author and Rachel for the book! We would recommend to all kiddies. We gave it five stars as a 100 wouldn’t fit.
