Zoe loves cupcakes, especially pink ones, and princesses, especially magic ones. Unfortunately her greedy brother Ralph loves cupcakes too—he spoils everything! One day Zoe bakes a wish into her cupcakes. Suddenly she is a real princess! But Ralph is still up to his old tricks. Will Princess Zoe finally find a way to give Ralph what he deserves?
Katherine Tegen’s humorous text and Kristin Varner’s magical artwork will satisfy every sister who has ever been plagued by a brother, and every child who believes in the power of magic!
Zoe travels her home and yard imagining herself a princess and discovers the magic of baking wishes into her cupcakes. Every girl who ever wished to be a princess, or simply to be temporarily rid of a meddling sibling, will enjoy this tale. It is an adorable tale of sibling rivalry and the power of the imagination.
No real problems are solved in Pink Cupcake Magic but the tale is fun and the illustrations perfectly delightful. I can’t stop myself from flipping through just to view the pictures every time I walk past this book!
