JUVENILE FICTION / Humorous Stories
...a lighthearted, fantastical read with delicious charm.
Booklist


Robert wants to bake a gigantic cake—the best in the world! But when Robert’s freshly created invitations blow out the window, Robert, his dad, and Mopsi the dog get an even bigger surprise. Just when they sit down to eat the cake, the doorbell rings again, and again, and again!

With humor and a keen sense of the absurd, Anne-Kathrin Behl tells a delightful story about the big and little wonders of everyday life.

Anne-Kathrin Behl grew up as the daughter of a bookseller and a forester in Greifswald, Germany. She studied illustration at the Hamburg University of Applied Sciences (HAW) in Hamburg and now lives with her husband and two sons in Leipzig, where she works as a freelance illustrator and writer for various publishers. Her books have been translated into many languages and awarded the Prix Chronos de Littérature. They‘ve also been included in the collection of the most beautiful children’s books as part of the Austrian Children’s and Young Adult Literature Prize.

...vibrant read especially well suited for our indoor era. - Kirkus

The lively background scenes and characters—including burly, bearded Dad, with arm tattoos and bunny slippers, and ginger mop-top Robert in a purple apron—incorporate whimsical and droll details. First published in Switzerland, this offers a lighthearted, fantastical read with delicious charm. - Booklist

Behl offers a humorous tale about the importance of being flexible when things don’t go according to plan. The lively illustrations enhance a message of diversity and inclusion; secondary characters such as the father, who appears to be a single dad with tattooed arms and likes to knit, joins adult and children of varied races and religions. - School Library Journal
