Praise for Eat the Cake
"A festive romp of good wishes.” (Kirkus Reviews)
"A book to wish—and to inspire—many happy returns." (Kirkus Reviews)
“reminds everyone to sing loudly, dance boldly, take chances, do dances, and, above all else, whenever possible, always choose to eat the cake.” (Foreward Reviews)
Glatt’s lively, abstract illustrations feature spreads of a yellow, yolk-like figure in a tassled cone hat engaging in all manner of fun—marching, dancing, star-gazing, and soaring atop a bird among many. A yellow, teal, pink, blue, and red palette is set in textural, color-rich strokes. Clark’s rhyming verse flows seamlessly through the book, inviting young readers to believe the best about themselves (“Be wild and fearless and free”) and look ahead with unabashed confidence (“And the world will be waiting, whenever you’re ready,/ to toss you your very own storm of confetti”). A jovial readaloud to mark birthdays and other joyful milestones. Ages 4–7. (Publisher’s Weekly)
