What the Schnoodlewacket Is a Cupcake?
The cat keeps walking across the keyboard. It's hard enough to type without thumbs, let alone when an annoying cat is in front of your nose. This is what he is typing: &%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%*GGG. I am grumpy now.
Back to cupcakes. I found "Just Grace and the Trouble with Cupcakes" under Mom's side of the bed. It is written by Charise Mericle Harper. When I nosed through it I noticed pictures of a dog, so I decided to keep reading. It is like a diary with pictures. That makes it a little easier for a dog to read, because the words are further apart and the drawings help me to keep my place when my whiskers get in the way. Yes, I have whiskers, but they are not like cat whiskers. They are better.
There's a girl dog in the book who came with the name Mr. Scruffers. That is silly, but it did remind me of my own situation. I came with the name Princess. Mom seems to keep telling people, "I didn't name her". What, is she embarrassed by my name? She seems to really love me so I try not to let it bother me. Oops, back to the book!
You might think cupcake books are only for girls, but you would be wrong. I found another book on the couch and it was "Jeremy Bender vs. the Cupcake Cadets" by Eric Luper. First Jeremy does something horrible to his dad's boat. He has to fix it before his dad finds out, so he needs money fast! He and his best friend see an ad for a model sailboat race and if you win you get prize money, maybe enough to fix a real boat. But you have to be a Cupcake Cadet, and a girl, in order to race and win. You'll never guess who dress up as girls! Lots of funny situations, and cupcakes too! I still don't know what cupcakes are but I really enjoyed the book.
