School Library JournalGr 3-7-- Students needing to locate distinctive national recipes may have some trouble with Australia due to its British-based diet. Many of the foods mentioned here, such as chips, fruit salad, and roast vegetables, will not be foreign or exotic to American readers. But Germaine and Burckhardt also include recipes for pavlova, anzac biscuits, lamingtons, and other uniquely Australian treats. Oddly, no recipe is provided for meat pies, although this standard food is no more difficult to prepare than kiwi tarts or egg and bacon pie. As is true for all the titles in the series, many of the recipes require extensive adult supervision and advanced cooking skills. Use in conjunction with a reading of Mem Fox's Possum Magic (Abingdon, 1987) for a great Australian program. --Jeanette Larson, Mesquite Public Library, TX

I USED THIS BOOK AS A CHILD AND LOVED IT. I STILL USE SOME RECIPES TODAY. MY FRIENDS AND FAMILY LOVE EVERY TIME I MAKE SOMETHING FROM THIS BOOK. I HAVE NOW STARTED EXPANDING TO OTHER BOOKS OF THE SERIES AND AM STILL EXPOSING MY FREINDS AND FAMLIY TO OHTER CULTURES AS AN ADULT.
