At the young age of eleven, Kathleen would get up early make her own breakfast and pack her lunch for school.  But most importantly she loved to bake. Her family lived on a farm and would sell their farm goods at a stand. She made a deal with her dad to sell cookies on summer break to buy her clothes for school. Kathleen wanted to make the perfect cookie. She tried over and over by mixing more of some ingredients and less of others until she had the perfect thin crispy cookie. All she had to do now was sell them and hope that people loved them as much as she did. How would she do it? 

Author Kathleen King is the cookie queen and founder of Tate’s Bake Shop. Her story is delightfully told with colorful illustrations. Young readers can be inspired and even bake these famous cookies themselves with the recipe found in the back.
