A picture book for young children by a three-times Smarties Book Prize Winner. The toddler in this story is celebrating his birthday and wants to make a cake. So he asks his animal friends for help in getting the ingredients. The chicken gets some eggs, the bear gets flour, the cat gets butter and milk, the pig gets a pinch of salt, the dog gets sugar and the monkey gets some cherries. Then all of them help to make the cake - and eat it, of course! Helen Oxenbury won the Kate Greenaway Medal in 1979, and her other books include the "First Picture Books" "Tom and Pippo" and three Smarties Book Prize-winning picture books, "So Much" (also Winner of the 1994 Kurt Maschler Award), "Farmer Duck" and "We're Going On A Bear Hunt" (both of which were also Highly Commended for the Kate Greenaway Medal), "Animal Allsorts" and "Puzzle People".
