Book Review - The Cake Thief

What would you do if you didn't know how to make a cake? One boy decides that he will steal them! Oh, he doesn't just steal small cakes, but the big celebration cakes. The Ace of Cakes cakes that he finds on window sills and under cake domes in the homes of his neighbors.

This funny tale of cake thievery did amuse my pre-school aged daughter. It wasn't quite clear to her mama why he decided to steal cakes, but it was still author Sally E. Lee is also the illustrator and I really loved her illustrations.

Overall, this was a cute book and one that certainly kept my squirmy daughter slightly less squirmy - which is certainly a good thing!

Thanks to the Chicago Children’s Theatre, the city’s largest professional theater devoted exclusively to children and families, for launching a new YouTube channel, CCTv: Virtual Theatre and Learning from Chicago Children’s Theatre. To kick if off we are treated to Frederick. Here's hoping this helps with your little ones. Or is a comfort to everyone of all ages. Chicago Children’s Theatre’s all-new virtual puppet performance was created while all of the artists were sheltering in place, working with resources limited to what they had in their homes or on their laptops. Frederick is directed by CCT Co-Founder and Artistic Director Jacqueline Russell. Puppets and sets were designed, built and puppeteered in a home studio by Grace Needlman and Will Bishop, CCT’s Director of Production, the creative team behind CCT’s annual series of Beatrix Potter puppet show
