Hector is baking a cake for his Granny and he’s determined that it’s going to be perfect.
But when he discovers that the peanut butter jar is empty, Hector decides that he must head out to find some more, or else his perfect cake will be ruined.
As time begins to run out, Hector’s luck begins to run out too. He may have to accept that sometimes perfection just isn’t possible…
I read this book with my daughter and she loved it!
She thought that Hector was great and as she is more than willing to try her hand at baking at the moment she loved the idea of Hector making a cake for his Granny’s birthday too.
She loved this efforts to get the much needed peanut butter and she was giggled and joining in throughout the book. It was well written and easy to follow and a big hit in out house – it is five stars from us for this one!!
