This was Deacon's first ever library book from school!

I rated this three stars but I'd give the story itself maybe two. First of all, if Miss Birmbaum is so mean, why is she throwing a party? Why does plum pudding make her shrink? Why does a cupcake make her grow again? Why is no one too surprised to find her smushed into a cupcake? WHY?

I gave it one more star because when I finished it, my son asked me to read it again. So even though I didn't really enjoy it, I'm not in the book's target demo
