Pierre and Henri find themselves in trouble when Henri allows the cow to taste Uncle Benjamin's blackberry birthday cake, thus turning the plodding bovine into an icing junkie.

From School Library Journal:

Kindergarten-Grade 2-- After baking a blackberry cake for his uncle's birthday, Pierre and his helper, Henri the pig, set out to deliver it on their tricycle. On the way, they happen upon the local policeman whose car has a flat tire. While Pierre and Mr. Cotton work on the tire, Henri and the cake wait in the vehicle; it rolls down the road and crashes into a truck. That leads to the discovery of the truck's contents, a cache of stolen goods. Pierre and Mr. Cotton arrive on the scene just in time to apprehend the truck's owner; Pierre and Henri get to Uncle Benjamin's only to learn that his birthday is still three days away and that they have time to bake a new cake. This unlikely adventure is illustrated in soft, warm earth tones, fine lines, and great detail. Round figures are generally viewed from above, providing a panoramic view on each spread. Humor is added to the predictable story by the cozy illustrations and by the occasionally interesting use of language. --Maria B. Salvadore, District of Columbia Pub . Lib .

From Publishers Weekly:

A disastrous journey to deliver blueberry birthday cake lays the foundation for this amusingly quirky picture book. When Pierre and his good friend Henri the pig meet a sweet-toothed cow along their route, events take a sudden turn for the worse, and it seems that they will never reach their destination--certainly not with cake intact. Sunny watercolors in muted sepia tones--highlighted here and there with greenery--detail country life in all its eccentricity, and inquisitive round-faced characters (both animal and human) abound. Translated from the German, the text has a sing-song rhythm that belies a sly humor--"and in the field was a cow, and in the cow was a stomach, and the cow's stomach was hungry." The bird's eye perspectives add an interesting dimension to this beguiling picture book. Ages 3-up.
