My favorite childhood reading  Mar 22, 2008
Some fifty years ago I could recite this book by heart. It was a precursor to my later infatuations with Gilbert and Sullivan. It has not lost its charm: medieval setting, whimsical plot, rhythm and rhyme, amusing observations of human foibles. I relate to the duchess today in ways that I might not have suspected as a child, and make it my favorite gift to other parents of little girls.
Love this story!  Dec 31, 2007
An untypical tale of a duchess who's clutzy in the kitchen. Read this story to my daughter years ago, now I got this copy for my granddaughter, and she loves it too.
What a fun book!  Sep 12, 2007
All my kids (4,7, & 9 yrs) loved this book! We especially enjoyed the rhyming text. Even so the text was extensive enough to tell a full story. In general, most pages have many lines of text. We read it as a Five in a Row book, but I am sure it will be a requested book for years to come. We were able to talk about many side issues including cakes, yeast, consequences, calories, catapults, castles, alliteration, complementary colors. The duchess decides to make a "lovely, light, luscious, delectable" cake but doesn't accept any advice or follow any instructions. As a result, she puts everything in it and way too much yeast! She sits on it and rises high in the sky unable to get down. It sounds rather silly but it is very well written and was a worthwhile purchase.
Most fun children's book ever!  Jun 18, 2007
I love, love, love this book! It's playfully delightful and now that I can get one at a reasonable price, I'll be ordering a copy for my 4 y/o niece soon!

Most fun I've had with this book is rapping it with a friend for a talent show...
Amazing! Its back in print!  Apr 8, 2005
This was one of the truly formative books of my youth. Silly and fun and with a wonderful rhyme. I have the most wonderful memories of my mother reading this to me. Years ago, when I first had children, I HAD to find this book for them and it was out of print. I managed to find an excellent copy but spent nearly $100 for it -- and thought it worth every cent! Now that its back in print, I've bought FOUR more copies -- for gifts for all the children of the right age that I can think of. Highly, highly, highly recommended!
