Gorgeous illustrations, and for a children's book it has amazing literary allusions that make it fun for adults. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0230759823, Hardcover)

Preparations for the Ghastly-Gorm Garden Party and bake-off are under way. Celebrity cooks are arriving at the hall for the big event and, true to form, Maltravers, the indoor gamekeeper, is acting suspiciously. Elsewhere at Ghastly-Gorm Ada's wardrobe-dwelling lady's maid Marylebone has received a marriage proposal. Ada vows to aid the course of true love and find out what Maltravers is up to, but amidst all this activity, everyone, including her father, appears to have forgotten her birthday!

The best chefs in the world come together for the Full-Moon Fete and the Great Ghastly-Gorm Bake Off and Ada's only hope is that someone remembers that it's her birthday.
