The tiny baker has the most dainty and delicious treats at her fashionable tearoom. Her insect customers are always well-behaved and elegantly dressed. But when the ladybug pastry chefs in the kitchen are called away to migrate, they leave a huge mess in the kitchen! How will the tiny baker clean up the mess and deliver delectable desserts to her fancy clientele? She discovers that true friends are always willing to help in a crisis.
I adore this book! Everything about it is perfection.
I love the positive messages about true friendship and jumping in to help someone in need.
I love the interesting plot, and how the tearoom and kitchen are described.
I love all the crazy insect characters with their refined manners and fashionable Victorian clothing.
I love the beautiful illustrations with all the little details in the background that make the story come alive.
It literally made me hungry seeing all the wonderful desserts in this book! I had to go get myself a little piece of chocolate to munch on while reading it.
Suddenly I’m inspired to bake some madeleines or ladyfingers or eclairs. I want pink lemonade and rose-hip tea.
This book is a complete delight from beginning to end!
