The Apple Cake by Nienke van Hichtum and Marjan van Zeyl
An old lady wants to bake an apple cake. She has everything she needs except apples. So she sets off to market to buy some apples, taking a basket of plums to trade along the way, just in case...
This is a classic story of sharing, trading and caring. Children will love guessing what the old lady will acquire next, and how, and seeing how her journey brings her a full circle as her kindness is repaid.
Includes an invitation to make your apple cake with the inclusion of a recipe at the end of the book
