This second book in the acclaimed Bliss trilogy mixes the down-home heart-punch of Ingrid Law's Newbery Honor Book Savvy, the always-on-the-edge-of-chaos comedy of Cheaper by the Dozen, and a humorous magic all its own to create a thoroughly original confection to please every reader's sweet tooth!

The Bliss family's magical Cookery Booke was stolen by evil Aunt Lily at the end of Bliss, the first novel in the series. Now twelve-year-old Rosemary has a chance to win it back: she challenges her aunt to an Iron Chef-style international baking competition in Paris. But the only way to beat the cheating Aunt Lily is to gather magical ingredients of her own. Together with her brothers and their talking cat and mouse, Rose races across Paris—from the Eiffel Tower to the Cathedral of Notre Dame to the Mona Lisa in the Louvre Museum—to gather what she needs to out-bake—and out-magic—her conniving aunt.

If Rose wins, the cherished Cookery Booke will return to her family where it belongs. If she loses—well, the consequences are too ugly to think about. . . .

        I really like this book a lot because there is a lot of description about what all the new characters look like. Evil Aunt Lily LaFey, is the beautiful, but evil aunt of Rosemary, Thyme, Parsley, and Sage Bliss. They think their aunt is harmful, but she is the opposite. Their evil aunt steals the special family Bliss Cookery Book. So Rose will do whatever she can do to stop her aunt. Rose challenges to a baking contest and will do anything she can to win! Her family depends on her to win the contest.
