I think my favorite story when I was a child was “I Wish That I Had Duck Feet”from Dr. Seuss, where the child narrator lists off all the wonderful things they wish they could do or be. This book may be an instant classic as it extends that delightful narrative in a wonderful book my entire family really enjoys. The story lists different wonders from the worlds of fairy tales and how magical it would be to experience them all.
Yet, the book itself offers it’s own magical experience in that each illustration is actually a photo of an elaborate cake setpiece set up as a 3-D diorama of sorts. Each page is a delicious delight! The book is beautiful to look at, with an engaging design and richly colored photography printed on high quality paper with a durable binding. It would be an excellent choice for any children’s library, whether at home, school, or in a city or town.
