Bake Sale by Sara Varon

genre: children's graphic novel

Cupcake owns his own bake shop. He works hard to make yummy treats to sell and he plays hard on the drums in the band he and his friend Eggplant are in.  Soon, though, Cupcake has a chance to maybe go on the trip of a lifetime and he has to make some pretty tough decisions about how to spend his time and what is most important to him.

This was absolutely a delight.  Whimsical - all the characters are foods and the drawings are so fun.  Kids will probably skip over the pages that show how to make the foods, but they will doubtless appreciate the sacrifices that Cupcake makes to not only get what he wants but to stay a good friend.  Love it.  Give it to a child you love.

I loved the drawings but I wasn't left confused by the message.
