I don't care what Marla Frazee illustrates, I would love it. This is a fun story about taking a bad day and turning it into a cake. It's sort of implied that Mrs. Biddlebox is a witch (all black clothing, black house, etc., and the word "witchy" is used once) but never overtly stated. She gathers up the gloom, some shadows, and a rope of sunshine and squishes them into a cake pan. After baking and eating, she goes to bed feeling much better. If only we could actually do it!
