Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Annie Laura Smith
Sammy Simone Sanford learns about recipes and cooking to complete a school assignment. When she decides to use her new culinary ability on a dinner party for the fourth grade, chaos ensues. Zero, her brother's dog, eats some of the food. Her classmates and fellow cooks make a mess in the kitchen. Then there is an electricity outage. Sammy has a new shy friend, Lillian, who incongruously arrived at school in a limo. She arrives at the party in the limo and brings a creative Jell-O dessert. After the dinner party is over, Lillian and her driver provide each one of her classmates a ride home in the stretch limo. Loyalty, friendship, and Lillian's acceptance by the other students are shown throughout the story. Sassy's recipes are included in a section of the book so young readers can make these yummy delights. These include "Sassy's Red Frozen Sparkle Sickles," "Sassy's Dazzling Banana Chocolate Sprinkle Delights," "Sassy's Purple Passion Milk Shakes,", and other special delicacies. The entire text is age appropriate including these child-friendly recipes. This book is part of the "Sassy Series" which also include: Little Sister Is Not My Name, The Birthday Storm, and The Silver Secret. Reviewer: Annie Laura Smith
School Library Journal
Gr 3–5—Sassy's fourth-grade class has an assignment to research a topic and experience it, then present it to their fellow students. The whole school is intrigued when a mysterious limo appears, bringing a shy and sad-looking new girl, Lillian. When Sassy and her friends welcome her, she begins to emerge from her shell, and Sassy decides to research recipes and throw a dazzling dinner party at her house. She succeeds in talking her mom into it by promising that nothing she makes will involve cooking. She invites her entire class and must combat her brother's sock- and food-eating dog; an electricity outage that threatens her frozen foods; a purple kitchen; and the possible disappearance of Lillian. As in the earlier tales, the protagonist's sparkly "Sassy sack" contains everything she needs to counter any dilemma. Themes of loyalty and friendship run throughout as Lillian finds a place she can belong, and Sassy and her family realize their strong family bonds. Young foodies will revel in Sassy's recipes as each of them is appended, along with child-friendly instructions. Draper has whipped up another delicious tale sure to please followers of Sassy and anyone looking for a fun chapter book.—Michele Shaw, Quail Run Elementary School, San Ramon, CA
