With a new spin on an old theme (remember “The House That Jack Built”?), this jolly story is the perfect picture-book choice for beginning readers.
"A perfect preschool read-aloud, this combines a rhythmic text with folksy pictures well executed in soft pastels."— Booklist, 8/2/2010
"The food chain described - farmer, seed, corn, hen, egg, etc. - begs to be read aloud. And what about Mack, who ate the cake? He provides a surprise ending that will delight audiences, for Mack is the farmer's large, playful dog. A welcome addition to picture book collections."— School Library Journal, 8/2/2010
