"In this follow-up to Where Is the Cake?, creatures of many species make their way on a wordless journey (with moments of dark humor) toward a picnicking location (each animal has its own personality and side story). When two pink cakes not so carefully transported in covered silver platters go missing during the trip, chaos erupts among the animals who, after a downhill chase, discover the thieves and recover the cakes. Readers will enjoy following each character's mini-dramas, which give the book a Richard Scarry style appeal, to the conclusion. Ages 3 6. (June)" Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)
