THE RASCALLY CAKE is the thoroughly revolting tale of the ghastly Mr Skumskins O'Parsley, whose favourite dishes include wormcast butties, squashed tadpoles on toast and bogey burgers. O'Parsley decides one day to bake an extra special cake, with more revolting ingredients than you can possibly imagine, but when the cake decides to eat HIM he realises it is time to mend his ways. The rollicking rhymes by Jeanne Willis are accompanied by Korky Paul's exquisitely detailed and exuberant illustrations.
Jeanne Willis is one of the most successful children's picture book authors. She also writes for television and video companies, and has two children. Korky Paul was born in Zimbabwe. He has lived in California and Greece as well as Great Britain. He studied at the Californian Institute of Art, Los Angeles, and then began a career as an Art Director in advertising, but found he enjoyed drawing so much he left to illustrate children's books. He is now a successful and well regarded picture book illustrator.
