Pie Day! January 24, 2011
Written by Marjorie Winslow, charmingly illustrated by Erik Blegvad, and called “delightfully digestible” by Life magazine, Mud Pies and Other Recipes is a cookbook for dolls filled with the finest of culinary curiosities. Reading it aloud is a perfect way to celebrate our pie holiday, while plotting plans for parties out among the garden plants when warmer weather finally comes our way.
Bon Appétit !
“Mud Pies delights because, like the very best children’s books, it gives young folks their due. Winslow’s recipes appeal to the considerable wit, sophistication and imaginative prowess of many young children…. Winslow’s book is a gem.” —Prospero, on The Economist website
“When I was about five years old, Granny gave me my first cookbook— Mud Pies and Other Recipes. Even though it was a pretend cookbook, it somehow persuaded me that real cooking must be fun.”—Sara Moulton
