For young fans of THE GREAT BRITISH BAKE OFF: a brand new series about friendship, family and cupcakes from Linda Chapman, the million-selling author of My Secret Unicorn.
Eleven-year-old Hannah Hallett's life has changed. Her mum has recently remarried, and Hannah's got a new dad and twin sisters! The whole family have moved from the city to a small town so that Hannah's mum can fulfil her life-long dream of opening a bakery.
But things don't start well for the new bakery, and soon Mum's too busy to spend time with Hannah the way she used to. Hannah knows she can turn the Sugar and Spice Bakery's fortunes around - all she needs to do is convince Mum she can be useful. Can Hannah use her baking talent to save the bakery, learn to live with her big new family and - most importantly - make some friends before school starts?
Friendship, fun and baking - this is CHOCOLAT for 8+.
