"[A] story that exudes a pervasive sense of magic and underscores how far one gladly will go in the name of love." (starred review)
"[T]here's a genuine sweetness to Julie Paschkis's story and her delicate figures are beautifully arranged, swept off their feet, in the book's open, cream-colored pages."
From the Publisher
Editors Note Award-winning illustrator Julie Paschkis paints a vibrant and delectable story of love, the power of imagination, and a most unusual cake recipe To Alfonso, the world is a magical place filled with possibility. He loves beautiful, kind, brilliant Ida; but she doesn't seem to notice him. So Alfonso, with an imagination as big as the sea, dreams up a very special cake recipe. He mixes some soft butter that he's plucked from the summer sun. He sifts in a cup of flour like snowflakes from a night sky. He adds three wishes, one bitter and two sweet. At last the cake is done, and he shares it with his beloved Ida, who finally discovers that wonders can be hidden in even the simplest things.
