Description Description In this follow up to Incredible Hotel, a crime disrupts the prestigious baking competition taking place at the hotel. But will detective Matilda be able to solve the case?
The world baking competition is coming up. It is taking place at the Incredible Hotel and will judged by guest of honour, Chef Tartine.
Stefan has perfected his chocolate cake recipe but on the morning of the event... the recipe is nowhere to be found.
Luckily, the best detective in Delaunay is on hand - Stefan’s best friend, Matilda. Who can the thief be?! Everyone has their theory and Mr Starch, the hotel manager, is ready to point the finger at a baking saboteur.
Just in time, Matilda discovers the recipe has been snatched by the Duchess of Delaunay's dog, who has used it to make a cosy nest for a surprise litter of puppies. All is forgiven and the competition resumes. Stefan wins the prize and Matilda gets the respect she deserves from the very patronising local police department.
This stunning, beautifully illustrated and nostalgic picture book is a follow up to Incredible Hotel, from exceptionally talented author Kate Davies and the award-winning illustrator Isabelle Follath. It visits the same unique hotel, depicted in characterful illustrations and described with whimsical and charming text.
