Sunny Chan is less than impressed with her new offer of work at a local cake store, the Gingerbread House, telling listeners, "Dressing up as a rabbit to sell cakes isn’t my idea of a sensible job". Nevertheless, when small, dead things start mysteriously turning up in the baked goods, teen sleuth Sunny can’t resist the intrigue. Aussie actress Rebecca Macauley (Neighbours, Blue Heelers) is sprightly and warm as she frolics her way through this Raven Hill Mystery from decorated young adult author Emily Rodda. The fifth installment of the series belongs to Sunny, and Macauley imbues her character with depth and ambition, capturing the confident, competitive nature of the young athlete.
The cake shop in the local mall, the Gingerbread House, gives Sunny the creeps. The rest of the Teen Power gang disagrees. It's good money, easy work, and there are delicious things to eat - free! It seems like a fairytale come true. But fairytales can often be scary as well. Sunny knows she has to act fast, or this will be one story that won't have a happy ending.
Emily Rodda has won the CBCA Book of the Year a record five times!
