by Nancy Willard

In perhaps the most exuberant children's book of 1990. a girl unearths a long-lost recipe for her great-grandmother's cake—and makes it, aided by a rascally Rainbow Coalition of angels. Richard Jesse Watson's illustrations complement Willard's warm tale. (Harcourt Brace Jovanovich, $15.95; ages 8-12)
