The scrumptious story about a tiny mouse and his very large, very tempting cupcake is now in a board book! When one small mouse finds one BIG cupcake (a chocolate chip, raspberry cream cupcake!), he wonders how to get it home. It's much too heavy for him to carry. So, one by one, Little Mouse asks his animal friends to help. They all say “yes”—but only after taking a nibble of the yummy treat. Will there be any cake left for the hungry Mouse? Thomas Taylor and Jill Barton have whipped up a tasty story of friendship and sharing . . . with a deliciously satisfying ending!

About the Author
Born in Norfolk, England, but raised in Wales, Thomas Taylor studied illustration at Anglia Ruskin University, Cambridge. His first commissioned work was the cover illustration for the British edition of a then-unknown book called Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone by J. K. Rowling. Since then Thomas has written and illustrated many children’s picture books. He lives in Normandy, France, where he shamelessly steals story ideas from his two little boys, Max and Benjy. Jill Barton has always loved drawing and children’s books, but didn’t pursue this passion as a career for many years. At the age of 44, having married and brought up three children, Jill enrolled on a degree course in illustration. She has since illustrated many bestselling books for children and received numerous awards for her work: she was shortlisted for the Macmillan Children’s Prize for Students; commended for the Kate Greenaway award; and won the Boston Globe-Horn Book Award for In the Rain with Baby Duck (Candlewick Press). Jill now has five grandchildren and lives and works in Devon, England.

Great read aloud. I used it in storytime combined with a flannel board I made of the cupcake. The children pretended to be the animals "helping" mouse get the cupcake to a more manageable size.
My daughter loved this book! The artwork is beautiful and the story is so cute.
