Grandpa Wollemi’s Birthday is Edward Benn’s latest title and it doesn’t disappoint. Beautifully illustrated in naïve style by Cynthia Barnett, this adorable story is about a child wanting to make something for Grandpa’s birthday.
Everyone is excited because it’s Grandpa Wollemi’s birthday. Kauri has made him a present and Myrtle has made him a present, but Cedro just can’t think what to give him. That is, until he remembers that Grandpa has a sweet tooth and decides to make Grandpa a birthday cake, all by himself. The simple egg-free recipe and how-to is described in the story so that readers will know how to make one themselves.
