Awards, Reviews & Star Ratings

Awards Winner of LIANZA Children's Book Awards: Russell Clark Medal for Illustration 2013 -- Short-listed for New Zealand Post Children's Book Awards: Picture Book 2013
NZ Review The repeated language runs to a perfect beat along with Tina's beloved wood carved illustrations making this book absolute winner. If you want a fun book to leave you with the warm and fuzzies and tickle your imagination, then you should pick this one up. Also, there is a cake recipe at the end. Win. * Aussie Reviews * This is a picture book well suited to pre-schoolers. The essential ingredients in this book are family, imaginative play and everyday family life. A Great Cake follows a repetitive structure, which will help young children to understand processes and instructional texts. -- Elinor Couper * Western Australian School Library Association * This will go on my favourites' list, highly recommended. * Magpies Magazine *
