Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Life is sweet.... Well, almost.

Dessert Schneider has her very own personal style.For starters, she signs her name like this:

Dessert

Because all you really need in the world is a Maraschino cherry.... Plus something to put it on top of, like a hot-fudge sundae or a cornflake-cream-cheesecookie or a banana split.

But sometimes walking to the beat of her own drum means walking right into a heap of mischief, especially when it comes to the legendary family recipe (and Dessert's all-time favorite chocolate treat), Grandma Reine's Double-Decker Chocolate Bars. As the oldest child in a rambunctious, restaurant-owning family, Dessert seems to be better at getting into trouble than getting out of it. And that's because for this eight-year-old, saying sorry is definitely not a piece o' cake

Synopsis:

Dessert Schneider walks to the beat of her own drum, which means walking into a heap of mischief--especially when it comes to the legendary family recipe for Grandma Reine's Double-Decker Chocolate Bars. Illustrations.
