The Tiny Baker
Hayley Barrett and Alison Jay
Enter a whimsical world, created in vivid detail with stunning illustrations by Alison Jay and clever, lyrical rhymes. Insect customers clamor to dine at the Tiny Baker's cafe, but when the ladybug chefs fly off and upend the pristine bakery's kitchen, the Tiny Baker learns an important lesson about friendship.
Hayley Barrett believes ants are beautiful, admirable creatures and she's just crazy about bees. She often transports roving insects back outside and she thinks you should too. Hayley lives outside of Boston, USA with her husband, John. Their two terrific children have grown and flown, but they come home often for tea and cookies. You can learn more about Hayley and her books, including Babymoon, What Miss Mitchell Saw and Girl Versus Squirrel at HayleyBarrett.com. Alison Jay has always been fascinated by tiny things including insects. As a child, her parents gave her a microscope and she has never forgotten examining a fly for the first time. Alison is not the best baker but she does love to make and eat foolproof date and walnut flapjacks in her home in London, UK. She has illustrated several projects for Barefoot Books, including the bestsellers I Took the Moon for a Walk and Listen, Listen!
