Dessert Schneider has her very own personal style. But sometimes walking to the beat of her own drum means walking right into a heap of mischief, especially when it comes to the legendary family recipe (and Dessert's all-time favorite treat), Grandma Reine's Double-Decker Chocolate Bars. As the oldest in a rambunctious, restaurant-owning family, with a four-year-old sister who is going through a “phase” and two little brothers called “the Beasties,” Dessert seems to be better at getting into trouble than getting out of it. And that's because for this eight-year-old, saying sorry is definitely not a piece o'cake!

About Hallie Durand & Christine Davenier

See more books from this Author
Hallie Durand’s favorite dessert is vanilla ice cream drowned in hot-fudge sauce.  She grew up in a large, food-loving family much like the one in her books.  But unlike Dessert, Hallie had to eat dessert after supper.  When she’s not writing, she likes to visit fondue restaurants to do “research.” Hallie lives with her family in New Jersey.  Christine Davenier’s favorite dessert is profiterole au chocolat.  She is the illustrator of many books for children including the Iris and Walter series by Elissa Haden Guest and The First Thing My Mama Told Me by Susan Marie Swanson, for which Christine received a New York Times Book Review Best Illustrated Children's Book of the Year Award. She lives in Paris.
