Blue Bananas: Cake Test

When King Frederick and Queen Gwen have triplet daughters, they’re delighted – except that no one can work out who should inherit the throne. So King Frederick sets the three girls a test: whoever can bake a cake, following his instructions but adding their own special flourish, will rule after him. The princesses all have their unique qualities… but who has the right recipe to become Queen? This quirky tale for developing readers comes with colour artwork throughout – an ideal step up from picture books.
