Book Review by Tracy Farnsworth

Rude Cakes don't say please or thank you. They never say sorry. They do not do as their parents ask. They certainly do not go to bed on time. What happens when a rude cake captures the attention of something even more horrifying than a rude cake? You're about to find out.

This is a very charming picture book that explains the benefits of using your manners. It's an ideal way to teach a child about manners and the illustrations and narrative draw you in.  I snickered a lot while viewing the illustrations, and if my kids were still younger, this would be one for the keeper shelf. If you like the No, David! book series, I think you'll really love Rude Cakes.
