Best-selling author Karma Wilson keeps things fun for young listeners with rhyming word play and healthy doses of gentle humor. Today is Grandma's birthday and Grandpa is going to make her a cake-a big one! But no stove is going to accommodate his grand vision. So using his pick-up truck and generous helpings of all the ingredients, he sets out to make a birthday cake like no one's ever seen before. Grandma didn't want him to make a fuss, but Grandpa just couldn't resist.

"When Grandma's birthday arrives, Grandpa decides he'll "traumatize" the kitchen with his baking skills and create an even bigger cake than he's made in previous years. Despite admonitions from his wife, Grandpa proceeds. How can four eggs turn into 86 or one cup cocoa become 24 boxes or a pan expand into his truck's flatbed? Grandpa's adapting the recipe! Ed Sala narrates with a steady pace, emphasizing both the rhyme and the exaggeration of this original tall tale. He gives personality to Grandpa and Grandma and relishes the "whopperness" of everything. The recording includes a recipe for a cake, not a whopper, but large enough for 16. A.R.
