 Clever Jack Takes the Cake
by Candace Fleming

A Texas Bluebonnet Award NomineeSM

If you were invited to the birthday of a princess, what would you take for a gift?

Something exquisite, right? Okay then, but did you forget? You're poor. Exquisite costs lots of money.

Something that she doesn't have, right? Okay, then. What is it that a princess doesn't have?

Something you make yourself, right? Okay, then. What can you make that a princess will adore? A cake! Of course! But, you forget. You're poor. You have no sugar, no flour, no eggs, no candles, no milk, no decorations.

All you have is an ax and a quilt. Okay, then. What can you make with an ax and a quilt? Nothing? Well, what can you trade them for? Aw! Now you're thinking.

Clever Jack has been where you are! How do you think he makes a cake for the princess? What horrible things do you think happen on the way to the castle for the party? Do you think he gives up? Does he just go back home?

Remember, Clever Jack is a problem solver!

Before your invitation from the Princess of your kingdom invites you to her party, maybe you should read Jack's picture book, Clever Jack Takes the Cake by Candace Fleming to get some ideas! It's a book that will inspire you to make lemonade from lemons, to always look at the bright side, and to be a success at whatever you do, regardless of the problems in your path! You'll take the cake every time!
