Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Sprightly watercolors highlight this antic twist on "The House That Jack Built," wherein a luscious confection falls into the wrong hands. Ages 4-8.
Copyright 1991 Reed Business Information, Inc.

From School Library Journal

PreS Robart adapts the cadence and rhythm of ``The House that Jack Built'' to her original cumulative verse. The cake in the title is a sumptuous treat, lavishly iced and decorated with candles, chocolate chips, and gumdrops. A colorful, full-page illustration faces each successive addition to the text. The basic enjoyment of the book comes from the attractive drawings and their perfect accompaniment to well written, repetitive phrases. The food chain describedfarmer, seed, corn, hen, egg, etc.begs to be read aloud. And what about Mack, who ate the cake? He provides a surprise ending that will delight audiences, for Mack is the farmer's large, playful dog. A welcome addition to picture book collections. Barbara C. Webber, Gordon-Barbour Elementary School, Gordonsville, Va.

4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By A Customer on February 7, 1999
Format: Paperback
I began reading this to my daughter when she was just a few months old, and I have never tired of it. Now, my daughter is nearly 2-1/2 and she still loves hearing the tale over and over. The illustrations are clear and colorful, and it's fun to look for the egg in each one. The text (a la House that Jack Built) does a nice job in showing the progression of relationships: "This is the corn, that fed the hen, that laid the egg, that went into the cake that Mack ate. etc."
Here is the (well-earned!) praise from the back of the book:
Booklist said, "A rollicking cumulative tale...a perfect preschool read-aloud."
School Library Journal said, "Will delight audiences."
Los Angeles Times said, "If you want to share a hearty laugh with your preschooler, get your lap ready. [This is ] one of those rare picture books an adult won't mind reading thirty-seven times in one week."

Children's language needs repetition and predicability as they are learning speak. It is also helpful when a child is learning to read for himself. This is an excellent book for toddlers through early readers, with short sentences, repetitive but catchy text. It has all the aspects that made the old classic "This is the House that Jack Built" such an enduring story. The illustrations were also really good. I expect to see this book remain for years and become a house staple alongside the Dr. Seuss books who use these techniques so well.
