Book Review: Everyone Loves Cupcake by Kelly DiPucchio, Eric Wright

Everyone Loves Cupcake is a picture book written by Kelly DiPucchio and illustrated by Eric Wright. It is a delightful follow up to Everyone Loves Bacon, but of course they each stand perfectly well on their own.

Cupcake dresses to impress. Her smile is brilliant. Her wave is flawless. She even wears a tiara. Everyone loves a tiara. And Cupcake wants everyone to love her. But when she tries too hard to make everyone happy, she crumbles under the pressure and realizes that sometimes just being yourself is enough.

Everyone Loves Cupcake is another fun picturebook from DiPucchio. Cupcake is always doing her best to be perfect, and in turn to impress everyone around her. If you have ever had anyone in your life that always seems perfect, you can empathize with the other foods and how frustrated they became, if you are a perfectionist like cupcake you can understand her drive to have everything perfect.  I like the bright, fun illustrations as Cupcake struggles to make everything just right, and her slow realization that her efforts are causing more damage to her friendships than good things. i think my favorite part of the book is when everyone is making their confessions, including Cupcake. good fun, great illustrations, and a wonderful lesson about being yourself rather than who you think others want you to be.
