Printz Honor winner and National Book Award Finalist Elana K. Arnold is back with Starla Jean Takes The Cake, an irresistible story of a girl, her chicken, and a few new friends, superbly illustrated by A. N. Kang.

It's Willa's first birthday -- a day that doesn't come along...every day. In fact, it only comes once and Starla Jean is going to make the best out of it for her baby sister. How?

A party!

All she has to do is:
-decorate
-keep Opal Egg entertained
-get ingredients for a cake
-try to get Opal Egg to lay an egg
-invite guests
-come on, Opal Egg! How hard is it to lay an egg? You're a chicken!
-bake the cake
-Give Willa the best first birthday party ever!

But, in typical Starla Jean fashion, a few surprises are waiting to derail the determined girl... but could they be...good surprises?
