About the Book

Bestselling author Tammi Sauer’s characters are both lovable and mischievous. In I Love Cake!, the first picture book featuring irrepressible Moose, orderly Rabbit, and fun-loving Porcupine, Rabbit plans a fabulous birthday party with fun activities and a delicious cake. Porcupine and Moose come to enjoy Rabbit’s big day, but everything goes south when impulsive Moose loses control of his appetite!

With hilarious bits of dialogue throughout, I Love Cake! is not only a dynamic read-aloud, it works as an inspiration for a short play. Themes of friendship and forgiveness come through on every page—and the birthday theme makes I Love Cake! an excellent choice for a birthday gift!

Educator and Librarian Resources

Critical Praise

Laid-back language and a subtle rhythm-all three characters make comments in speech-bubbles on each page-make this happy-go-lucky picture book fun to read aloud. —ALA Booklist

Moose’s confessional monologue, which appears in a page crammed with all-caps text, is laugh-out-loud funny (“Is it my fault my mouth’s so big that the whole cake kind of fell right in?” he wails). —Publishers Weekly

Rozelaar’s digital illustrations portray Moose as a big-eyed, rather bumbling goof (in a wildly patterned and colorful sweater) next to his more delicate (and hapless in the case of Porcupine) friends, setting up the story nicely. A lesson in sharing that goes down as easily as, well, cake. —Kirkus

...The cartoon animals are sweet and expressive. Readers will ask for seconds of this fun title. Super for storytime or one-on-one sharing. —School Library Journal
