Clever Jack Takes the Cake by Candace Fleming

Reviewed by Diane Basting (Library Staff)

Jack gets an invitation to the Princess’s 10th birthday party and uses ingenuity and determination to make a cake for a birthday present. Once the cake is all assembled, no easy task, Jack sets off to the party and learns when he gets there that sometimes the best presents are the intentions behind the gift and having a kind heart to go along with a clever mind. I would recommend this for older readers as there are a lot of words, and the message will hit different for anyone who has a difficult person to buy a gift for.
