Ella Takes the Cake Ella Takes the Cake

Written by Carmela D'Amico
Illustrated by Steven Henry

Ella longs for a little independence in this second adventure for the charming elephant.

Ella the elephant is too little to slice the cake in her mother's bakery, and the oven is absolutely off-limits. It feels like she can't do anything important - until Ella's mother needs help with an emergency cake delivery. Then Ella peddles off on her trusty cart to prove herself, but there's a bumpy road ahead!

In her second magical adventure, Ella the elegant elephant shows that you're never too little to save the day - so long as you have a big heart.

"The pictures are reminiscent of both de Brunoff and Rey, but charming Ella makes the story her own. Especially fine are D'Amico's settings, inventively detailed, richly colored, and always focused on what the audience wants to see. This has favorite book potential." - Booklist, starred review

"As in the first book, the D'Amicos create a sunny Mediterranean Elephant Island with bright pastels and colored pencil. The characters have personality and charm." - School Library Journal

"The D'amicos' extraordinary elephant embarks on a second adventure full of all the thrills a young elephant can manage. Lavishly hued illustrations offer readers an exotic oasis of sapphire seas and warmly inviting red tile-roofed houses. The quaint detailing of the pictures hearkens to an old-world Europe that is both charming and intriguing for readers to explore." - Kirkus Reviews
