With a focus on overcoming fails and pivoting to new ideas, this hilarious story stars a young boy who dreams of baking extraordinary cakes but struggles with perfectionism in the midst of competition from fellow Baker Makers.
Naveen loves to bake. In fact, he’s sure he’s practically a master baker. So, he is thrilled when his class is assigned to tackle creative cake-making at Baker Makers Lab.
Naveen is positive his cake will be the most astonishing and extraordinary one of all. But the mismatch between his fertile imagination and his actual skills leads to disaster.
Will he find a way to embrace the unexpected? Find out in this delicious and delightful STEAM-centred picture book about letting go of perfection from New York Times–bestselling author-illustrator Kim Smith, creator of Boxitects.
