Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
With this book's basic approach to cooking, even the youngest chefs will be able to take part. Simple recipes include such crowd-pleasers as Buttermilk Power Pancakes, Skyscraper Sandwich and creamy mashed potato soup. Chick and Dee from chickaDEE magazine and a personable cast of cartoon friends create a playful atmosphere, as they appear in comic strips and interact with ingredients—a green monster assures readers that his “Grrr!” is “just my tummy! I'm a friendly monster!” The zany spirit of the cartoon personalities may contribute to a messy kitchen, but the diversity of recipes should lead to some happy eaters. Ages 6–12. (Oct.)
School Library Journal
Gr 3–6—Illustrated with a fun mix of color photographs and cartoon characters, this cookbook presents more than 55 recipes with a focus on preparing nourishing meals. Eleven introductory pages discuss safety, equipment, healthy eating habits, allergies, and cooking terms. The issue of safety is handled inconsistently. The phrase "check that it's allergy-safe!" is used in some recipes for prepackaged ingredients but not in others: salsa and tortillas have a warning, but bread does not. The potato soup recipe instructs cooks to pour hot liquid into a blender and puree. This creates a great deal of steam and can be dangerous, but there is no cautionary note. Some recipes are truly fabulous and kid-friendly, like Breakfast Quesadillas with apples and cheese and the Soup in a Jar from the kitchen gifts section. But with so many great cookbooks like Kids' First Cookbook (American Cancer Society, 2000) and Angela Wilkes's Children's Quick & Easy Cookbook (DK, 1997), you can skip this one.—Genevieve Gallagher, Buford Middle School, Charlottesville, VA
