2016 Ezra Jack Keats Book Award - New Illustrator Honor
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.
Rowboat Watkins is mostly a dad who likes to tell stories and draw. He lives with his family in Brooklyn, New York.
