Cakes in Space by Philip Reeve, Sarah McIntyre

Reading Level: Grades 2-5

Astra and her family are migrating to Nova Mundi.  The trip will take 199 years.  But Astra won't see any scenery because all the humans will be put in a deep, deep frozen sleep until the ship reaches their new home.  Everything WOULD have gone as planned if Astra hadn't slipped off to the dining hall and asked the Num-O-Tron to make a cake that "is so delicious it is scary."  Astra doesn't get her cake because the Num-O-Tron is still computing when she is put in her pod.  When she wakes up she discovers the ship is infested with giant, ferocious cupcakes.  Worse Pibeam, a friendly robot, tells her there are still ninety-nine years left before anyone else wakes up.  Can Astra evade the sharp toothed cupcakes long enough to save the ship??
