Summary: This is a graphic novel, or a novel sized comic book kinda, and the right away you can see how the illustrations are awesome! The story is about Eggplant and Cupcake being best friends and Cupcake wanting to travel Istanbul to meet his idol, a very famous baker. It focuses on the power of friendship between the two when Eggplant loses his job and Cupcake helps him out in the end. Perfect for young kids developing social skills and making new friends.

Personal commentary / reflection: I never really got into graphic novels, and a delightful little book like this is why I kind of regret that! The extra little features are so neat! First off, the texture of the pages is cool- it's not normal paper. It's a thicker, kind of laminated paper, which makes the book feel thicker and more fun. There are recipes included in the back that are all the things Cupcake bakes throughout the book. What a great addition- perfect for a cooking class for younger kids. ( )

Bake Sale was about a cupcake going through a hard time with a bakery, raising money for a trip, and the band. I did not like the idea of a the plants, and other plants eating the bread with (zucchini) and also it was close to a cannibalistic setting. With the plants, and others eating each other. Also, this book was very short, and I didnt have time to catch on or even hook to the plot. ( )

This book is very cute. It tells a cute story of a cupcake baker who wants to meet his favorite pastry chef in the world. It gives a good story of friendship and dreams.

"Bake Sale" follows the storyline of an eggplant and cupcake who are best friends. The cupcake owns a successful bakery and dreams of traveling to Turkey to meet a world famous pastry chef/ baker, who the eggplant happens to know personally. Eggplant wants to go to Turkey to visit the famous baker and to visit family. The cupcake works very hard to save up enough money to travel to Turkey, but Eggplant ends up getting laid off from work and therefore cannot afford to go with cupcake. Cupcake ends up buying Eggplants ticket to Turkey instead of going himself. The moral of the story appears to be the value of friendship and hard work.

A nice book about friendship, working hard, and sacrifice. The illustrations and the premise are cute. I enjoyed reading the recipes used in the story.
