There's a Dodo on the Wedding Cake (Hardcover)
Mr. Snore is back at the Sharemore Hotel for a wedding, a cake, and loads of animal friends in a delightful case of mistaken identity. This is one read-aloud gem for the ages.
— From Staff Picks by Maureen
For his return visit to the wacky Sharemore Hotel, Mr. Snore will be playing his violin at a fancy wedding. As he waits for his cue to join the ceremony, he admires the wedding cake . . . and notices that he’s not alone in ogling that tower of frothy perfection. Is that a dodo, eating one of the frosting roses? As more and more creatures enter the scene—including two beavers, a boa constrictor, and a bunch of bats—it’s hard to tell who’s a guest and who's a pest. But Mr. Snore, rushing the cake trolley from room to room, is going to do his heroic best to save that prize from sure disaster. From author and playwright Wade Bradford and award-winning illustrator Kevin Hawkes comes a madcap encore to There’s a Dinosaur on the 13th Floor, starring the ever-proper Mr. Snore.
Kevin Hawkes is the illustrator of many books for children, including the award-winning Library Lion by Michelle Knudsen; There’s a Dinosaur on the 13th Floor by Wade Bradford; A Little Bitty Man and Other Poems for the Very Young by Halfdan Rasmussen, translated by Marilyn Nelson and Pamela Espeland; The Three Mouths of Little Tom Drum by Nancy Willard; and Weslandia by Paul Fleischman. Kevin Hawkes lives with his family in southern Maine.
Kids will love poring over the detailed illustrations, looking for hidden jokes, and learning that things aren’t always as they seem.
