This third book in Kathryn Littlewood's acclaimed Bliss trilogy mixes the down-home heart punch of Ingrid Law's Newbery Honor Book, Savvy, the always-on-the-edge-of-chaos comedy of Cheaper by the Dozen, and a humorous magic all its own to create a thoroughly original confection, a delicious guilty pleasure for readers of all ages.

Rose won back her family's magical Cookery Booke in an international baking competition in A Dash of Magic, the second novel in the series. Rose is now world famous--so famous, in fact, that Mr. Butter, head of the Mostess Corporation, has kidnapped her so that she can develop new-and-improved magical recipes for his company's snack cakes. With the magically enhanced Dinkies and Moony Pies, Mr. Butter plans to take over the world.

Together with her brothers, their talking cat and mouse, and an unlikely team of bakers, Rose must overthrow Mr. Butter before he destroys civilization, one magically evil snack cake at a time.

Back cover copy

For Rosemary Bliss, fame is no laughing batter.

It's been two weeks since she beat her evil aunt Lily at the Gala des Gateaux Grands baking competition. Her victory won her back her family's magical cookbook, but it also made her quite famous.

So famous, in fact, that she's been kidnapped by the Mostess Corporation. Now Mr. Butter is making Rose use her magical know-how to create new-and-improved recipes for Dinkies, Moony Pies, and Glo-Balls. Yet, as flattered as Rose is to have been given such responsibility, something's not quite right about Mr. Butter; the whole situation feels like a cupcake without frosting--Just. Plain. Wrong.

Together with an unlikely team of bakers, Rose must come up with a plan to overthrow Mr. Butter before Mostess and the International Society of the Rolling Pin take over the world, one magically evil snack cake at a time.

Blending humor and magic, and throwing in a dash of heart for sweetness, Kathryn Littlewood's third helping in the Bliss series will be a guilty pleasure for readers everywhere.
