Ms Lenger read you the following story:  Clever Jack Takes the Cake written by:  Candace Fleming and illustrated by: G. Brian Karas.

It is a story about a poor boy named Jack who struggles to deliver a birthday present worthy of the princess.

In the story, Clever Jack Takes the Cake, Jack did not have money to buy a birthday gift for the princess. He traded what little he had for ingredients to make her a birthday cake. Unfortunately, as Jack traveled to the castle for the royal birthday party the cake was eaten by blackbirds, a troll, a dancing bear and a castle guard. Nothing was left of the cake when it was Jack’s turn to give his gift. Instead, Jack told the princess the story about what happened to the cake and “a story” turned out to be her favorite gift!
