Description

Who knew that cakes were so rude?! In this deliciously entertaining book, a not-so-sweet cake—who never says please or thank you or listens to its parents—gets its just desserts. Mixing hilarious text and pictures, Rowboat Watkins, a former Sendak fellow, has cooked up a laugh-out- loud story that can also be served up as a delectable discussion starter about manners or bullying, as it sweetly reminds us all that even the rudest cake can learn to change its ways.

  • (5/5)
    This book is about cakes who are rude and mean and overall nasty cakes. One cake is taken by a cyclops who thinks he is a hat and the cyclops doesn't listen that he is a cake until he uses his manners. This is a good fantasy because cakes aren't personified and cyclops don't exist. PRIMARY and INTERMEDIATE

    Perfect for a manners themed preschool story time.

    The confectionary hero of this delightful debut picture-book from author/illustrator Rowboat Watkins is one rude customer! Refusing to say please or thank you, cutting in line, ignoring his parents when they are speaking to him, our eponymous Rude Cake spends all day treating others poorly. But when a massive Cyclops mistakes our cake for a hat, his subsequent polite behavior, both to his fellow cyclopses and to the cake himself, inspired our misbehaving dessert to change his ways...I found Rude Cakes absolutely charming! Its matter-of-factly surreal story-line, in which sentient desserts live alongside cyclopses, makes for entertaining reading, especially for those who enjoy silly humor. The narrative models both good and bad manners for young child readers and listeners, and highlights the idea that those guilty of bad manners can always choose to change. The artwork, done in pencil and ink, and then finished digitally, is really cute, and captures the quirky humor of the tale quite well. Recommended to anyone looking for children's stories about manners, good and bad.
  • (5/5)
    A cute spin on how one can be rude vs how one can be polite and how anyone can change for the better.
