Watkins Rude CakesA giant Cyclops teaches a rude cake a lesson in manners. A two-tiered pink cake terrifies her fellow goodies, shouting at them and snatching their toys. The didactic message is that “no cake is ever too rude to change.” The illustrations carry the book, and children may not mind the heavy-handed preaching.
