Description


A joyful collection of poems by the author of Mirror Mirror, in the form of recipes both simple and allegorical.

This delicious collection of poems by the innovative Marilyn Singer is accompanied by vibrant splashy artwork by two-time Caldecott honoree Marjorie Priceman. Presented in a small-size format to appeal to older readers (as well as young), the book has the look of a vintage collector's compendium that includes pictures, ephemera and annotations to add interest. Even young children are familiar with recipes--a series of steps to help them make something--and the book begins with simple dishes and ideas (such as a recipe for reading a recipe and a recipe for measuring), and then adds more ideas and grows in sophistication until the last recipes broach lofty concepts (such as a recipe for understanding and a recipe for peace). A treasure of words and images and ideas.

"Young readers will love the fun and challenging words that poetry can showcase—celeriac, anyone? And they'll relate to the joy that food can bring, which emanates from each page." —Booklist
