Written by Sasha Lewis
Illustrated by Natalka Stephenson
This old folkloric story originated in the North of England. It was interpretated anew for Meridian by Sasha Lewis and Natalka Stephenson.
In a typical English cottage there lived a little family. One day, the little boy put a fruitcake to bake in the oven. But when he opened the door to see if the cake was ready, what a surprise to see the cake leap up, on little human legs, and jump out of the window!
The little cake then embarks on a wild adventure across the forest, in this jolly tale written like a nursery rhyme, and peppered with plenty of British humour.
