Birthday presents for mothers are never right-they're always too big, too small, or the wrong color. So when a young girl's mother simply asks for a homemade birthday cake, the girl thinks her troubles are over. Her happiness quickly disappears, though, when she hears the name of the cake her mother wants. The girl knows she won't find a High Rise Glorious Skittle Skat Roarious Sky Pie Angel Food Cake recipe in The Joy of Cooking. It will take a secret ingredient, a clumsy uncle, a grand piano, and some angelic visitors to help the girl make this wonderful gift for her mother. But baking it is only half the adventure; the biggest surprise is yet to come. Nancy Willard is the prize winning author of more than 20 books for children, and received the Newbery Medal in 1982. Her delectable tale of food, magic and love is as heavenly as the gorgeous birthday cake. Download and start listening now!

    " A simple idea, so beautifully done. I tried to lend this to the professor I had for Children's Literature at CSUF, but he said no--good thing, since books have a way of wandering off and not returning (you must never go down/ to the end of town/ if you don't go down with me!). "
