Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Joyce Rice
Rikki Raccoon introduces the reader to the delicious world of campfire cooking be it in the backyard or in the woods. He provides campers with a list of cooking equipment and a grocery list. Then Rikki introduces safety tips for handling fires, and offers tips for gathering firewood and building a cooking fire. The recipes are very simple and are illustrated for appeal. Recipes range from main dishes such as Porky on a Poke, a pig in a blanket variation, to the favorite camper's treat, S'Mores. The recipes in the collection adapt well to summer backyard cookouts. Some of the recipes do require adult supervision. Grandparents with grandchildren visiting for the summer may want to try out some of the ideas in this delightful cookbook.

Read an Excerpt

Campers do it.

Cowpokes do it.

City people sometimes travel miles to do it.

They all cook over a campfire. Sometimes they roast marshmallows in the middle of a forest. Other times they grill salmon in a city park. Whatever they are preparing, it always tastes better cooked out-of-doors. Fresh air and the smell of wood smoke stir the appetite. Without refrigerators, stoves, or microwaves, outdoor cooks can create great meals--sometimes even better than the ones at home!

    I absolutely love this book. We use it at home and with cub scouts all the time. I have loaned my book out so many times I need a new one just so I can always have a copy for myself.
