Our book in focus is Chocolate Cake by Michael Rosen and Kevin Waldron (illustrator).
Now in picture book format, Michael Rosen’s popular poem tells the story of a young Michael who loved his mum’s chocolate cake. One night he can’t resist the temptation of creeping downstairs to ‘look at’ the left over cake in the kitchen. No prizes for guessing what happens next!
This poem tells a funny story and evokes a whole raft of childhood feelings including temptation and greediness, excitement, contentment, guilt, fear, worry and regret. Kevin Waldron’s illustrations add to the humour of the situation and emphasise the dread of discovery.
