Cake for Everyone

  • Interest Level: Preschool - Grade 1
  • Reading Level: Kindergarten

A group of animals chase their stolen picnic in this wordless look-and-find adventure picture book full of intricate detail and comical storytelling.

Time for cake! But the eagle swipes up the blanket and flies away. The animals chase after to find all their stolen picnic things.

Thé Tjong-Khing’s visual storytelling slows us down and invites us to look more closely. Can you remember everything on the blanket? Hat, ball, doll, feather, cake? Who is hiding in the bush? What has the dog seen on the cliff? How will pig get back her sun umbrella? Why is the rabbit crying? And how can there be cake for everyone when the very hungry rat family has eaten it already?

Collect all the missing objects, find out who they belong to, and come back home for more cake in this cheerful, wordless look-and-find story that culminates in the delightful reward of sharing.

Publishers Weekly

“Pleasingly fragmented and comically cohesive, spreads rendered in fine lines follow the antics, making for a set of brain-teasing mini-quests that invite readers to consider who arrived first, what belonged to whom, and how they’ll all arrive at the titular conceit.”—Publishers Weekly

Kirkus Reviews

“Twists and turns abound, and sharp-eyed readers will delight in poring over all the possibilities and filling in the blanks. . . A delicious tale that will reward attentive readers.”—Kirkus Reviews
