About the Book:

Like most cats, Marigold prefers to be alone. Unlike most cats, Marigold prefers to be alone baking! Prepare yourself for a picture book filled with delectable treats and a “full-on feline frenzy” as Marigold faces some unexpected guests.

Well-dressed Marigold loves Mondays, for that is when he bakes cakes! With his favorite recipe in front of him, he rolls up his sleeves and gets down to it. He whips up egg whites…Easy. He adds a cup of milk…Peasy. Then he sprinkles in just a pinch of…of finch?! That’s not right at all! Neither are the smidgeons of pigeons or the spoonfuls of loons. Clearly a chase is in order! Yet all that leads to is a spectacularly messy kitchen. And no cake.

With a recipe comprised of equal parts humor and charm, author-illustrator Mike Malbrough has cooked up a scrumptious laugh-out-loud addition to the great tradition of interruption books. Perfect for fans of Mo Willems’ Don’t Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus and David Ezra Stein’s Interrupting Chicken.
