Bake Sale is a sweet story of friendship.
This graphic novel includes much environmental text, onomatopoeia sounds, directions, and many labels. It tells the story of Cupcake, who owns a bakery, and his friend, Eggplant. (All of the characters in the book would be found at your grocery store.) Eggplant is invited to Istanbul for his aunt’s party. The baker that Cupcake admires most in the world, Turkish Delight, will be there. Cupcake gives up things he loves (the band) to make extra money so that he can go to Turkey with his friend. In the end, his friend loses his job, so Cupcake buys his ticket to the party instead of going himself.
