Patty Costello, Diane Cojocaru (Illustrator) Eifrig Publishing (MAY) Hardcover $14.99 (32pp) 978-1-63233-101-4
When a foolish king decides to build a wall to keep people from a neighboring kingdom away, his royal baker dreams up a delicious solution. Catalina is a lighthearted parody full of colorful confections. Innovative artwork in a riot of watercolor shades depicts the crafty baker as she whips up gobs of dough, gallons of icing, and miles of rainbow sprinkles, outsmarting the king just in time for a visit from her family one kingdom over.
