Dessert Schneider lives in New York, is in 3rd grade, and is the eldest child in a loud, active family that owns a fondue restaurant. Trouble starts when Dessert gobbles up a special treat and has to make it right with her family. This debut book reminded me a bit of Clementine, but Dessert isn't quite as charming as that 3rd grader. However, I liked this book for its slim, easy to follow plot, a character who is instantly relatable for just about any girl the same age, and the fantasy element for readers - a little girl whose parents own a restaurant that specializes in fantastic desserts. What's not to love? Who wouldn't want to BE Dessert? A good bridge novel for girl readers who might be past Junie B. but not quite ready for heavier or longer reading.
