When Snickerdoodle gets up before the rest of the family, he is thrilled to find one of Mom’s Famous Lemon Poppy Seed Cakes.

But Snickerdoodle will also use his brainpower to devise a plan that just might save the day.
A charismatic clan of chinchillas confronts everyday problems in this humorous story of family life and foibles.
