'Strawberry Shortcake Volume 1: Return of the Purple Pieman' by Georgia Ball is a fun graphic novel for young readers. It's not what I normally would read, but I had a good time reading it.
Strawberry Shortcake owns a cute cafe and is the best baker around. When her cafe has an anniversary, her friends decide to throw her a party, but can they do it as good as Strawberry Shortcake can? And who is the mysterious person who gives her cafe a glowing review?
Next, the poor little Berrykins have lost the tractor that they like to ride on and Strawberry Shortcake's friends decide to enroll her in a baking contest in order to win a prize for the kids. The problem is the mysterious purple man in the contest.
It was a pretty cute story. Although my daughter was never a fan, I could see the appeal for young readers. The baking contest is a good parody of the ones on the food channels. The obsession with social media that the purple pieman has is pretty funny too. Good for young readers.
I received a review copy of this graphic novel from IDW Publishing, Diamond Book Distributors, and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you for allowing me to review this graphic novel.
