The Sleeping Baobab Tree

As I had posted a couple of days ago, a big and hearty congratulations to my dear friend Paula Leyden upon the book birthday of her new The Sleeping Baobab Tree. There was a wonderful launch party (which I missed due to being hard at work in the Galway branch of Dubray Books) held at Stonehouse Books in Kilkenny.





And I just wanted to share with you all this brilliant cake (!!!!!)

Now THAT'S how to have a launch party. (Sorry... I'm always excited about cake... especially when they look like this... gorgeous and totally fitting the occasion.) I hope no one minds my pinching the cake photo (from Paula's own website: http://thebutterflyheart.net/2013/05/06/the-sleeping-baobab-launched/) and just to keep everything clear; the cake was made by the obviously amazing Nicky Read of Nicky's Cakes (http://nickyscakes.wordpress.com/ ) Hopefully, that squares everything.
On to other matters about The Sleeping Baobab Tree... you'll find my review up on the Irish Books, Authors and Publishers page; and, of course I'll let you know as soon as it appears elsewhere.
A beautiful, funny, gentle and heart-warming book that takes us back to Zambia....
Congratulations, Paula! You've done it again!
