Wacky measurements and twisted timing create confusion as two young monsters try to figure out how much time they have and how many ingredients they need to make the perfect boggish cake. With equivalencies, conversions, and time telling tricks Brendan monster helps his friend Mariah bake a cake for all the monsters coming over.
This extra special and delightfully silly story teaches children fractions in a fun, exciting way. The power of friendship to overcome obstacles is demonstrated and the surprise ending shows how perceptions can be misleading.
An action packed and sweet tasting activity is included at the end of the story so all little ‘monsters’ can bake along!
