It Happened on Sweet Street
What happens when a creator of cakes, cookie concocter, and patisserie baker all move their shops to the same street? Chaos. Everyone has their opinion on which one is best and is not afraid to tell you about it. Then when the bakers try to prove their baked good is the best a wonderful thing happens. Check this book out to find out. The text is great. I like its playful nature. There are lots of great vocabulary works throughout. There are one or two places it didn’t flow very well, but other than that, it is a job well done. The illustration choice is odd. The style seems to be fit for an intense or scary book, but not for a book about battling sweet shops. The characters look very clown-like and not super appealing to kids. I did like the odd shapes of the buildings and the coloring was fun.
My kids, three and six, liked the story, especially the food fight, but didn’t ask me to read this book again. I recommend this book for children aged four to eight.
