Riassunto: Disaster threatens when Mrs Oberon's son, Scrimshaw, runs out of her delicious cock-a-hoop-honey-cake. It is the only thing that will stop her little grandson Sweeney's teething pains. Mrs Oberon has to save the day - fighting off all manner of dangers to deliver a cake.
From Kirkus Reviews: Urgently, Scrimshaw telephones his mother for help: Wanda's left him with Sweeney, who's teething, and only some of his grandmother's cock-a-hoop honey cake will mollify him. Loading cake, meatballs, and some heavy, nutritious muffins into her backpack, Mrs. Oberon leaves her seven hungry cats and hops onto her trailbike. Her journey involves many kinds of transport- -rafting through rapids and alligators (diverted with meatballs); a plane menaced by ``ice vultures'' (the muffins weigh them down); etc. Meanwhile, Scrimshaw vainly tries to amuse Sweeney with his electic guitar, and is so exhausted by the time his mother quells the tyke that his next move is for the TV. No way. Pleasant but firm, Mrs. Oberon teaches her son to bake his own cake, then goes home to feed her cats. Lilting with wordplay, Mahy's tall tale is so good-humored that even a feckless father would be disarmed. Chamberlain's airy cartoons are equally cheery, with plenty of comic dividends--the alligators ``trying to free their fangs'' from the meatballs; huge, couch-potato Scrimshaw, beaming with pride over his first cake. A delight. (Picture book. 5-8) -- Copyright ©1993, Kirkus Associates, LP. All rights reserved.
