B.G. Hennessy grew up in Wantagh on Long Island, NY. At the University of Wisconsin in Madison, she majored in fine art and learned how to design, print and bind handmade books. She also took courses in Children s Literature. The combination of form and content in the picture book format fascinated her and after graduation she headed for NYC where she worked for 17 years in children s book publishing as a designer and art director. She is the author of Road Builders and The First Night, as well as many books starring Corduroy, the loveable toy bear created by Don Freeman. She now lives with her family in Arizona.
The town is getting ready for a wedding, and readers will immediately be caught up in the excitement. At the center of the joyous preparations is Jake, the rotund, cheerful baker who is making the wedding cake. "The flower girls got some curls"; "The bridesmaids' roses tickled their noses"; and "The groom forgot to bring the ring." And all the while, "Jake baked the cake." He is seen carefully adding the eggs, industriously stirring the batter and lovingly placing the pans in the oven. Finally, as the father gives the bride away, Jake puts the finishing touches on his magnificent creation: a cake with four tiers, each separated by columns and decorated with pink roses. Hennessy's spritely rhymes and Morgan's detailed, pastel drawings convey the buoyant spirit of this old-fashioned wedding, with just the right amounts of humor and warmth. Ages 2-6.
