A fantastical, rhyming hardback picture book set in outer space where aliens get a little carried away with their new-found love of cakes and baking.
‘Do you know the story of how the Earth was made of cake? It happened a long time ago, when aliens learned to bake.’
Set on planet Cookie Dreams, after years of eating nothing but biscuits, a little alien called Zappo's mum discovers how to bake delicious cakes. Soon all the mums are creating spectacular cakes, but they become competitive about who can bake the best cakes, so Zappo’s headteacher decides to put them to the test. A cake off date is set, but what happens next is out of this world!
