The Vanderbeeker children, ages six to thirteen, race to help save their mother's baking business from closure after it fails an inspection.
- Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2019 July #1
Spring break is chaotic in the Vanderbeeker household. Mom, who bakes cookies to sell, struggles to prepare for a kitchen inspector's visit and a magazine photo shoot of her baked goods. Meanwhile, her five children let the inspector in at a bad time, attempt to help one night by painting the living room a disastrous pink, and deal with a series of pets abandoned at their door. Despite the kids' best efforts, calamities pile up, but with support from friends, neighbors, relatives, and a kindly stranger, their week ends happily after all. Glaser manages the large cast of characters with ease, shifting the third-person narrative's point of view from one young Vanderbeeker to the next. These distinctly individual characters are a little older now, and details within the story show their emerging skills, capabilities, and awareness of others, as well as their well-established interests and personalities. With the main events unfolding within a six-day period, the short time frame and looming disaster bring a sense of urgency to the narrative. A satisfying addition to the Vanderbeeker series. Grades 3-6. Copyright 2019 Booklist Reviews.
