Jake the Baker Makes a Cake

In this illustrated picture book, Jake the baker is always happy and his boss, Mr. Jeremiah, is always angry. When Mr. Jeremiah decides he wants to change, he tries to buy Jake's happiness. Jake agrees so that he will have enough money to marry Rose, Mr. Jeremiah's daughter. He then becomes cross, loses his ability to bake and decides to leave town, to the dismay of Rose. Instead of leaving, and inspired by his assistant, Jake returns the money and regains his ability to bake. He creates a most amazing cake to win a big contest so he and Rose can marry after all. This delightful fable is told partly in verse and is designed to be easily presented as a play. P. K. Page has won many awards including the Governor General’s Literary Award for Poetry.
