“Lucy Rowland and Mark Chambers have together rustled up a deliciously disgusting tale. Lucy’s the rhymer and Mark the picture maker and their latest offering is sure to illicit plenty of EEUUGHs from young audiences. There’s an added treat in the form of a pack of scratch ‘n’ sniff stickers: clothes pegs at the ready!” — Red’s Reading Hub for ‘Jake Bakes a Monster Cake’ by Lucy Rowland, illustrated by Mark Chambers.
