The Cake Thief by Sally O. Lee is a fun, easy to read, and beautifully illustrated tale of Clarence, a young boy who likes to steal cakes. We don't know why he doesn't talk to anyone in town, but we know he goes through the neighborhood stealing cakes, until one day he gets an invitation to a party and Clarence must bring a cake of his own.
This short picture book is filled with strikingly handsome illustrations rendered in oil paint on paper. Your youngster won't soon forget Clarence's small gray house with a purple door that sits on the top of a hill. Nor will she forget his plump black cat, Evelyn.
Lee shares Clarence's story with words that perfectly match her stunning illustrations. After reading this story to your child, there will be much difficulty in everyone picking their favorite parts because there is so much to love and enjoy.
A sweet and yummy tale of belonging and friendship, The Cake Thief by Sally O. Lee will win your heart and become one of your child's favorite books.
