A baking nightmare makes for slapstick comedy gold in this hilarious Little Gem from a bestselling author and illustrator team.

Dad is a Master Baker and Albert is expected to one day follow in his footsteps. There’s just one problem ... Albert doesn’t care about baking, he only cares about football, tennis, cricket and any other sport you can think of. When his dad invents The Doughmaster 5000 to help out around the bakery, it seems all their problems have been solved. But disaster is never far away and soon Dad’s miracle solution is a rampaging nightmare! With just a pair of football boots, a tennis racket and a cricket bat to hand, can Albert really come to the resuce and fix this mess?
