A mild-mannered baker, a Master Chef, turns into “Dough Girl,” a superhero. That’s the premise behind this whimsical little children’s book written by ten-year-old Hope Edwards. In the story, Dough Girl flies off to the local school to help a little girl named Meghan who has been confronted by Pat, the Evil Cook. Meghan is being forced to eat unpalatable muffins that have been baked in a Food Factory from “processed dough.”
This is a gently exciting adventure for young children. At the same time it is, for their parents, partly a parody of adventure comics, partly a call to be more careful about what we feed our children, without being heavy-handed in its message.

Cute story with fun sound effects!
It was great and persuasive and fun
cute interesting story
it was a cute and interesting story, the sound effects were a nice touch. this is a good bedtime story to read to your kids. Although I have to say I felt a little guilty since I am one of those moms who doesn't bake her own bread/muffin (gasp!). but that aside, it's a nice story originally written by a kid as well.
