      “The Fairytale Cake” is a children’s book written by Mark Sperring and illustrated by Jonathan Langley. It is a relatively new book, published in 2005.

      This book features tons of fairy tale characters as they bake a cake and deliver it to a birthday party. The idea itself


      has potential, but the execution is disappointing.

      The good news is that the story boosts some very cute illustrations of various fairy tale characters, including the big bad wolf, humpty dumpty, the three bears, Goldilocks, and various other kings, queens, unicorns foxes and sheep from other stories.

      assumed the story would feature the characters working together to make a cake. I certainly thought they would face some sort of adversity along the way as well. However, that is not the case. The prose is very limited, to only a single phrase for
      every two pages. I do not understand why the author did not offer a real story for such delightful illustrations.
