A Piece of Cake
By LeUyen Pham
Balzar + Bray
May 2014
40 pages

It’s Little Bird’s birthday and Mouse baked a cake. On his way to deliver the cake to Little Bird he meets up with Chicken, Squirrel, Bear, and Cow. Each one offers him a bribe in the form of an odd trade for a piece of cake. Although the items seem rather useless to him, Mouse is far too kind to say “no.” Alas, by the time he arrives at Little Bird’s house the cake has disappeared. No worries. Clever Little Bird hatches a plan to trade each of the items for the ingredients to make a bigger and better birthday cake, and a birthday party, too. Pham’s digitally enhanced cartoon drawings are vibrant and spice up this story with plenty of playfulness. A Piece of Cake is the perfect birthday book with a tasty twist.
