This is a gorgeous (and funny) little book which is actually a step up from a typical early reader because it needs a sustained interest through a longer tale. It starts out with Baby Prince Frederick whose Nanny loses him (!) and the young reader has to follow his story all the way through to the Cake Test. There's plenty of laughter including a king who faints, bump, onto the floor causing three Nannies to confuse which of the baby triplets is firstborn! Well, seeing that the first ever Nanny lost Prince Frederick, you can't really blame the over abundance of nannies either! But wait for it! The Cake Test! I shan't say more. Except, always add "think" to the recipe! Suitable especially for avid reader-girls from talented 5 year olds to reluctant 8 year old readers.
