Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Cherie Haas
While this isn't a "cookbook" per se—neither an oven nor a stove is needed—it is a wonderful resource that will help girls get started in the kitchen. They are likely to need help making each simple dish only the first time, so this a great book for guiding a girl toward independence. It's also a fun resource for theme parties or Girl Scouts meetings; the foods can be multiplied depending on how many princesses there are to feed. There are only a few recipes, but a section about tools and techniques, complete with straight-forward photos, makes this a practical book. Realistically, the images are more likely to aid a young chef-in-training better than the descriptions. There is a glossary, but it's not as useful as one may guess; it includes words such as "castle," which has no cooking relevance and needs no definition for the intended audience. The recipes feature healthy ingredients, such as whole grains and low fat options, and the tools are safe—no slicing is needed. From a parent's perspective, this book is a helpful introduction to following directions and planning ahead (e.g., ingredients, tools). In addition to the glossary, this has a list of related books and an index. This is part of a set of themed cookbooks for kids. Reviewer: Cherie Haas
School Library Journal
Gr 1–2—Though promoted as fun snacks and for possible use at a similarly themed party, at times it's a stretch to consider some of these foods as particularly monster-, pirate-, princess-, or astronautlike. For example, the introduction to a peanut-butter-and-jelly breakfast sandwich states, "The pirate Blackbeard was known for plundering ships. He probably took the breakfast right from people's hands. This waffle sandwich is worth fighting for." Photos of the dishes in the tables of contents immediately draw readers in, and throughout the books the clear images are the main way of demonstrating the use of tools, techniques, and every step of the recipe. Stoves are not needed for any of the dishes since any required heating—melting cheese into pizza sauce, cooking oatmeal, making popcorn—can be done with a microwave or toaster. Ultimately, there are a few healthy hits ("Princess Parfait" with berries, yogurt, and granola) and many near misses ("Bigfoot's Boogers" uses broccoli but also spray cheese). Health-conscious parents will have to be prepared to make substitutions or to run interference altogether.

    Super cute. I love to let my daughters (5 and 3.5) cook / bake with me. When things are too ingredient intensive though we all get frustrated. This is a great book of truly simple recipes. I could see gifting this for birthday parties too. We are making fruit loop necklaces this weekend.
