Everyone knows the feeling. First you smell it, then you see it…CAKE! It’s on the table standing there. You cannot help but stop and stare. The icing looks like such a treat, it smells so chocolatey and sweet! And before long…YOU REALLY WANT THE CAKE.

Readers join a spunky and mischievous heroine and her devoted sidekick pup as the temptation mounts, and a little lick becomes a bite. With bouncy rhyming text and expressive illustrations, this story playfully tackles themes of impulse control, truth telling, and making amends (or at least trying to). Includes a recipe at the end of the story.
