Antoinette Portis

Author and illustrator Antoinette Portis recommends Rude Cakes by Rowboat Watkins. “Rude Cakes is so unexpected and so funny. There are some brilliantly surprising page turns, and a good moral too. But you hardly notice, because you’re laughing too hard.”

Rude Cakes (Chronicle Books, 2015) is recommended for ages 3-6.
