When I was a little girl, I used to look forward to going to the library, where downstairs towards the right on the shelf was my favorite book, "The Sugar Mouse Cake". I would pull it off the shelf and sit down and read it, each time with the same enthusiasm and excitement as the first. I am 32 years old and I still think of this book from time to time and I smile. It is out of print but I'm working on obtaining it so I may pass the special story and illustrations on to another little girl with hopes that she will cherish it the way I do.

This was by far my sister and my absolute favorite children's book. I remember my school librarian reading it to my class in First grade. I checked that book out every time it was available. I would love, love, love to have a copy for myself and to read to my 4 children. Please, reprint this book. It was/is such a loved story!!

I loved this book as a child and read it so many times that I could recite most of it from memory! "...and when he said 'Hold,' Tina held perfectly still." This book has all the components so many books are missing today: a believable hero, Tom, who is jeered at by the other kitchen staff for his dream of being the King's chef but never doubts himself; Tina, the charming heroine who must be rescued but is brave, resourceful and doesn't lose her head; and the Queen, the silly, dramatic "villain", whose attack of hysterics is treated with tea and toast and an early bedtime. The pictures are perfect, soft and friendly but exciting enough to suit this wonderful story, which will delight children of any generation. Sadly, it is out of print....

I too, have been searching for this book for twenty years. It is no longer available in any library in Western Canada. I have also scoured every used book shop in Victoria, Calgary, Seattle and Portland, each time disappointed. I want very much to share this book with my two daughters. I know there are countless fans out there. How can all of us positively affect the Publisher/Author's decision to re-publish this book? HELP!

I too have been searching and amazed to find other people who share my nostalgia for such a wonderful book. It stands out as one of my best, happiest memories reading this story over and over. I hope to find it soon!

As a bookseller, this is one of two books I truly regret selling. I read it several times before it left my shelves - I have a special love for children's books, and this is one of those that has a special magic. It is cheerful, innocent, and imaginative - my favorite of any title by Gene Zion. It stands next to "Jellybeans for Breakfast" and the "Miss Suzy" books in its mastery of child-like fantasy and clever word-play, and like these titles, is terribly hard to get a hold of! The next copy I come across (and I am crossing my fingers that I do!) I guess I will have to keep!

My grandmother used to recite this book to me when I was a little girl. She had been a librarian for the local school and this book was her favorite. She actually had it memorized! Even when I was sixteen years old I still asked her to tell me the story! It is a wonderful book. What a shame it is out of print.

This book was checked out from the library countless times by my seven children, and when they were grown I tried in vain to find copies to purchase as a surprise for them. The best I could do was to obtain permission from the publisher, since it's now out of print, to make copies, and although they cherish those, it's just not like the real thing. But at least now their own children can also enjoy the magic of this wonderful story and its delightful illustrations. I cannot imagine why it is no longer in print; surely it would still be a best-seller. It should be in every child's library.
