Parragon Book Buddies: The Carrot Cake Catastrophe

Our latest book from Parragon is The Carrot Cake Catastrophe by Elizabeth Dale.

Jenny’s grandad has come to babysit her on her mummy’s birthday. Jenny really wants to make her mummy a really special surprise present and together she and Grandad make a Carrot Cake. But Grandad’s glasses get messed up and Jenny’s not that good at reading, and somehow all the wrong ingredients are added… 

BG found this book hilarious she couldn’t wait to find out what happened next. She read this with her daddy and I could hear them giggling the whole time.

The pictures are lovely and the story is nice. There is also a recipe for carrot cake at the back of the book and I have promised we will make them soon.

I asked BG what she thought of the book:

What did you think of the book?

It’s really funny.

What was your favourite part?

When they kept putting the wrong ingredients in.

Its double thumbs up from BG again.

Our latest book from Parragon Books is Wakey Wakey Big Brown Bear by Tracey Corderoy.

Wakey Wakey Big Brown Bear

Poor Big Brown Bear doesn’t want to hibernate as he will miss all the fun in Autumn and Winter so his friends promise to wake him.  When things don’t go to plan they have to find an alternative way to share the fun with their friend.

It’s a really sweet story and as always with books from Parragon Books the illustrations are beautiful.  BG and I snuggled down to read this book and this is what she thought:

When they were in the snow

Was there anything bit you didn’t like?
