Dessert Schneider marches to the beat of her own drummer, whether it's bribing her younger sister to clean her room or convincing her family that they should start serving dessert first. But when she spoils a special surprise, she'll have to figure out a way to make it up to her family.

Dessert's got an interesting family and a super third-grade teacher, although I wish we got more details about the background characters. Her nemesis, Amy D., is completely one-tone and the conflict would feel more urgent if the plot were a little bit tighter. Still, the imperfect, spunky Dessert will appeal to fans of Moxy Maxwell and Clementine and the descriptions of food seem to melt in your mouth.
