From Christina Tosi, the playful creator of the popular bakery Milk Bar, this is the story of a girl whose delicious dream comes to life, filling the world with color, creativity, and joy. Original recipe included!
Everything in Samesville is exactly
the same, from the people and their clothes to the houses and their doors.
So one night before going to bed, Sammi tucks a recipe card under her pillow and wishes that things were not the same. And when she wakes up, that white, black, gray sameness is gone, replaced with things that are bolder and brighter and wilder than ever before!
With her newly colorful world and a new recipe book, she gathers her friends and makes the most magical cake, beautiful and different--just like Sammi and her friends.
Things will never be the same again.Author:
