Synopsis

It's Tess' mum's birthday and she and her dad are baking a surprise cake, or at least they are trying to! The problem is that they don't have a recipe book and dad doesn't really know how to cook. Find out how they get on, what they forget to do and how they try to fix it. Will mum's party tea be the best ever or will it turn out to be a birthday cake disaster? Written in rhyming verse, this heart-warming and humorous tale will delight children and their parents alike. Try making your own pink party cake using the recipe at the end of the book and keep your eyes open to spot Tess' cat in each scene.

Ruth Whenham began her career as a freelance writer a short time before reaching her 40th birthday. To say it was something of a mid-life crisis would be absolutely true! A graduate of Human Psychology and a former employee of the National Health Service, Ruth now splits her time between writing, looking after her family (she has two children) and volunteering at her local Citizens' Advice Bureau. Ruth combines jaunty rhyming verse, humour and great characters to create stories that are entertaining for young children and for their parents alike! To date, Ruth has published five children's picture books; all of which have been illustrated by the talented artist, Emma K.L. Hunt. Here is a brief summary of Ruth's five books: My Crazy Purple Pen - featuring a crazy purple pen (funnily enough!) and a whole host of other fun characters who get caught up in the magic pen's cheeky mischief. The Day My Teacher Came to Tea - a story about a boy who's mean teacher comes to tea, and the farce that ensues. Birthday Cake Disaster - a tale about a girl baking a cake with her dad, or at least trying to. It's okay, the ending is a happy one, despite the title! Captain Sillyvoice and his Pirate Band - a swashbuckling adventure featuring the very aimiable Captain Sillyvoice and his rather unusual crew. In this tale these awesome pirates find a way to have fun, be themselves and become a success on the high seas. Captain Sillyvoice Takes to the Stage - the Captain and his crew return for another fun-filled adventure during which they find themselves up against the big and mean Captain Scaryscar in a singing competition. How will they and the other pirate stars of the show get on, and who will be crowned the Sea Shanty King?
