When you, a poor boy, use all your resources to make the princess a beautiful cake for her tenth birthday, but a series of unfortunate events (crows, a troll, a bear) finds you arriving at her throne empty-handed, do you have anything left to give? If you're Clever Jack, you have a great story!

Loved this cumulative (or is it subtractive?) story with a twist. It would make a great flannel or storytelling choice, too. From the author/illustrator combo who did Muncha Muncha Muncha.
