Durand, Hallie. DESSERT FIRST New York : Atheneum Books for Young Readers, 2009 IL 3-6, RL 5.1 ISBN 1416963855 Meet third grader Dessert Schneider. Well, her parents own a restaurant so it isn't too weird that they named her Dessert. But she surely lives up to her name. She loves desserts. When she finds her mother's new chocolate dessert in the refrigerator at the restaurant, she doesn't think anyone would notice if she just took a taste -- or a bite -- or ate just one -- or ate all of them!! Oh no. What is she going to do now?
