    Best Recipes for Healthy Kids

    This fantastic book includes many recipes kids will enjoy to cook as well as eat. They are healthy but fun ways to introduce your kids on eating things other than meat. It's also a fun book with colorful illustrations. I give it two thumbs up.

    Of Dragons, Vegetarians and Animagic

    I've always been partial to tales of Dragons; so it was a matter of time before I found myself encountering a wonderful Dragon named Herb. What sets Herb apart from his fellow Dragons is that he is a vegetarian --- the first children's book character with that specific trait. When we first encounter him, he's going about his business in the Forest of Nogard, collecting veggie stuff, if you will, only to be captured by the Royal Knights of Nogard, simply for being a Dragon. Later, while Herb ponders his fate, he is visited by Meathook, leader of the meat-eating Dragons, who offers the 'Veggie-head' a chance to escape. But Herb refuses; and next morning he is on the verge of having his head chopped off, when a young lady named Nicole dares to speak up for him. Having seen Herb collecting his favorite vegetable plants, Nicole wastes no time in proving her friend's innocence; and after a brief vote by the meat-eating Dragons, harmony (culinary and otherwise) is restored to Nogard. Huzzah! Herb, the Vegetarian Dragon is the inspired creation of Jules Bass, best known as the co-founder of Rankin/Bass Productions --- the company that gave the world Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer, Frosty the Snowman and other milestones of TV animation. Teaming with London-based artist Debbie Harter, Bass weaves a magical saga of tolerance (the lessons of which were long a hallmark of the Rankin/Bass series and specials), good eating habits, and just plain L-O-V-E. Bass created Herb after becoming a vegetarian himself over 10 years ago, by which time he realized that no children's book character had ever been created to specifically explore moral issues related to vegetarianism. When the chance came at last for him to do something about it, Herb was born. Since then, Herb's story has spawned a follow-up, featuring the Veggie Dragon's unique collection of recipes (created by himself, with the help of his Grandma Flora, Grandpa Snap-Dragon and [of course!] Jules Bass himself!), with a second cookbook in the works, not to mention a possible weekly series --- which, one hopes, might yet rejuvenate the Rankin/Bass partnership of old. Dragon-lovers, veggie fanatics, this is your kids' book. And it goes without saying that Herb IS your Dragon. Buy this little Dragon darlin', wontcha? (Heh-heh!)
