Corderoy’s unobtrusive, let-me-tell-you-a-story rhymes allow Lenton, a British animator making his debut, to take center stage with cheerily frenetic images that look like freeze frames from a cartoon...
The story, written in rhyme and accompanied by Lenton’s mixed-media illustrations, is lively and expressive. The baked treats look good enough to eat and will surely appeal to storyhour audiences. Each page contains a tiny spider that children will love to try to spot.
—School Library Journal
Charming... This fresh take on the “trickster-tricked” idea — with a rhyming text that meshes well with Lenton’s mixed-media illustrations — should get plenty of use from your library’s own sticky-finger gang.
About the Author
Tracey Corderoy is a teacher, but with a head happily crammed with countless ideas and stories for children, she began writing in 2006. She lives in Gloucestershire, England, with her family and a whole host of cute-but-naughty pets.
Steven Lenton spent many a school vacation working in the family pom-pom factory. Since this somewhat fluffy start to his career he has gained a BA and MA in animation and has become a successful animator and art director in children’s television. He lives in England.
