Reviewed by Three Silly Chicks - Readers, Writers, and Reviewers of funny books for kids.

It's sad but true. Sometimes, Silly Chicks have short attention sp . . .

Every now and then, we enjoy a super fast read. And what could be faster than reading a book without words? As it turns out, reading a book with words! At least that's the case when the book without words is the newly translated picture book called WHERE IS THE CAKE? by T.T. Khing. This title was originally published in Dutch as "Waar is de Taart?" (You don't really need to know that. We just like saying, "Waar is de Taart?")

This book contains two of our favorite things: Cake and looking for cake. Two very odd, possum-like creatures steal a cake from the dog family and high-tail it through an ever-changing landscape of dense forests, bamboo jungles, strange rock formations and mountains. Readers must track the mischievous marsupials and, of course, the cake. Easier said than done! Each maze-like page is filled with tiny exotic creatures, each on their own adventure. Why is the baby bunny wailing? Is that snake stalking the young piglet? Is that a chameleon sitting in the wet paint? Each frame introduces new characters and clues that will have kids (and adults) flipping pages back and forth with delight trying to figure out what is going on! It's enough to make you forget all about cake! Well . . . almost. WHERE IS THE CAKE? is simply a treat for book lovers of any age.

I bought this book for my son (21 months) and he loves it. We can focus on something different every time we read the book thanks to all the characters and their adventures. Once he can talk, he will be able to tell the stories himself since there are no words. The colors and illustrations are beautiful, the characters are very well selected and each page has a surprise. And there are so many details to check out! It is a wonderful story, and I hope it becomes a child's classic. I highly recommend it to small children but also older children as all the stories within the story teach something and they can relate to what is happening.I look forward to more books from T.T. Khing in the future. CMP

This is a book that we can spend forever on at bedtime. Each time we "read" (there are no words) we follow a different character's journey through the story. Every time we find something new. My 2 1/2 year old seeks certain characters on every page and asks questions interested in everything, creating an often hilarious insight into how her mind is processing the story and world. My daughter loves this book and she will sit and "read" it on her own, narrating the events. Everyone I have ever shown this book to finds it wonderful.

I really liked this book because it is a different story each time you read it. There are no words but as you turn each page, you notice something new and your child will too.

I checked this book out of the library and my 2.5 year old son has asked me to read it every day so I will purchase a copy for our library. Normally he isn't overly attached to any particular book, even though we own many very good books that I have spent numerous hours researching before acquiring. The ultimate test, I guess, lies in each child's individual tastes. That said... I really enjoy this book too. As the first reviewer notes there are no words in the entire story, just pictures depicting several different threads from page to page. It took me 3-4 times through before I really started to catch on to all that was going on, which may be one reason my son keeps asking for it. A couple of the scenes depict fighting amongst the characters, so this may be undesirable for some people, though I have managed to explain it to my son as "playing rough", and it hasn't prompted him to ask about it any further.

My daughter LOVED this book when we got it from the library. Eventually we had to return it. We got the sequel "Where is the cake now?" and that was OK but the original is better. So now that my son is that age, we're getting him a copy.
It has no words, just very detailed pictures. We usually would track one or two characters through the book and tell a story of what he/she was doing. So it combines the kid love of an I Spy type book with make up your own story. Expensive for a used book, but worth it!

An unbelievingly clever child's book without a word.

Each page is so full of wonderment and surprises that you want to
read it again and again to see what you missed on the first journey.

You laugh and giggle like the child beside you as you both find things
at the same time.

I first read this book with my grandson in Belgium and was so delighted
with it I ordered copies at soon as I arrived back in USA for four more grandchildren. Hope there are more books by this author Tjong-Khing.

What a great book! I bought it for my two year old, and we are both enjoying discovering new stories every time we read it. With so many intertwining story lines and fun illustrations, it never gets boring. It's also a very empowering experience for her because she can follow what is interesting to her and "read" it to me. My daughter is being raised bilingualy, so it's a fantastic book to read with Mama and Papa who do it in two different languages. A fun book for every age!
