Claire has moved to the country, where her parents have opened an organic bakery. Although Claire says she’d rather move to Mars, she soon falls in love with her pretty bedroom and their big creaky house. Claire hardly thinks about the city any more after she and her dog, Bongo, discover the natural wonders in the surrounding woods. And Claire has made a "best friend forever" the brave and headstrong Jet.

To make things just about perfect, the bakery is a success ... so why are her parents always arguing? ("Why do they want a bakery when all they do is argue about it? They should open a bickery instead," writes Claire in her diary.) When Mom suddenly leaves with the Artificial Flavoring Salesman, Claire can’t believe it why would she run off with that creepy guy? "Operation: Rescue Mom" takes Claire back to the big city with Jet and Bongo. The excitement bubbles over when the friends stumble into a quick-rising plan for global domination through artificial baking. Claire and the Bakery Thief is an irresistible treat for middle readers. And don’t miss the recipes in the back!

Janice Poon is an award-winning writer, illustrator and graphic designer. She authored Kids Can’s first-ever graphic novel, Claire and the Bakery Thief. She lives, works and continues to dream up Claire adventures in Toronto, Canada.
