Her talent is in convincing dough that it wants to do what SHE wants it to do, so it rises properly and it doesn’t burn. When you're different, even just a little different, even in a way that people can't see, you like to know that people in power won't judge you for it. And happens to think that dying with mismatched socks on is not very cool at all (which I am sure is something we can all wholeheartedly agree on), for three.

It all starts with a dead body in the bakery — “I haven’t seen a lot of dead bodies in my life—I’m only fourteen, and baking’s not exactly a high-mortality profession” — and from there eventually leads to some life-or-death stakes for the entire city-state. If they think this book is too harsh (or whatever) to be published for children, then how the heck would Roald Dahl. Puede hechizar masa, pan y hombres de jengibre y cuando la ciudad en la que vive empiece a correr peligro va a darse cuenta que con eso va a tener que ser suficiente para defender lo que ama.

I caught myself holding my breath during moments of danger, I found myself smiling at the Duchess, fearing for Spindle (Mona’s new friend from the more unsavory parts of town), and almost crying when Mona was faced with decisions and responsibilities no 14-year-old girl should have to face. Well…a big formal wedding is about the same (and because we do cakes, I’ve been on the periphery of a few), except that if things go wrong in a siege you’ll all die horribly, and in formal weddings, the stakes are much higher. Bob the carnivorous sourdough starter was a definite favorite, along with the gingerbread man familiar and Spindle the pickpocket were the main secondaries, along with Knackering Molly who can raise dead horses and is a touch not all there, and Mina’s aunt and uncle.

This is a another great adventure/detective/save the city story with Ursula Vernon's original brand of humour and imagination. When a body is discovered on the floor of the bakery her life is flipped on its head as she flees from a sinister figure determined to get rid of all wizards. and every time biscuits were mentioned I was imagining British biscuits - however I think they're the softer more scone-like US-style biscuits (they're eaten with honey in one scene) which threw me off somewhat. Her relationship to her family and her doughy familiars – namely, sourdough starter Bob and one very protective gingerbread man – are as adorable as they are funny.The great wizards, the magi that serve the Duchess, they can throw fireballs around or rip mountains out of the earth, heal the dying, turn lead into gold.
