"For anyone who's ready to open their eyes to the real meaning of the food they eat, or for those who already feel the importance of healthy eating, this book will be a treasured addition to their collection."
VOYA
Paul's latest in the Girlosophy series is an ambitious mix of advice, politics, and recipes by "real girls" from Spain, Australia, and the United States. There is a real focus on the idea that eating is a good, fun, and necessary part of life that allows one's body the energy to have fantastically cool adventures and to tackle life's challenges . . . ergo, the better the food choices and preparation, the better quality of life a "Girlo" has. Simple recipes with clear instructions and mouth-watering photography will inspire readers to copy the hip, grrrl-power culinary creations. The one disappointment of the book is the format. Although colorful, funky, and artistic, it renders many pages and parts of other pages difficult to nearly impossible to read. One page can have six or seven different fonts of various type styles, colors, sizes, and boldness. These different types are sometimes thrown against backgrounds too light to make the text legible. One paragraph of white typeface overlaps a background photo of a chef's coat and another, a dish featuring milk in a bowl. This reviewer asked teen readers to look at this book, including the pages in question and even those youthful eyes found several pages hard to read. Nevertheless the book is recommended for collections with the other Girlosophy titles. Good alternatives are Teens Cook (Ten Speed Press, 2004/VOYA December 2004) or Teens Cook Dessert (Ten Speed Press, 2005), both by Megan, Jill, and Judi Carle.

School Library Journal
Gr 8 Up-A gorgeously styled cookbook/healthy eating primer for Girlo devotees. Paul has created a gloriously photographed and superbly art-directed text extolling the virtues of taking time to prepare food that provides one's body with needed nutrition and celebrating the spiritual connection between body and soul. Faithful to the series, the author invites readers into the kitchens and cupboards of young women who understand and appreciate that "junk" in will translate to "junk" out. However, as a cookbook that one might actually cook from, the normally aesthetically pleasing style of the series is a disadvantage. The micro font on white pages, often in shades of yellow, orange, or green, is extremely difficult to read even for those with 20/20 vision. Though much of the text is colored in a more readable hue, the freestyle narrative that doesn't follow typical punctuation rules is another challenge for home cooks. While fans of the series will appreciate the content, they will need to transcribe recipes. But for those who simply want to soak in the Girlo style and mood, this is a serviceable addition.-Elaine Baran Black, Gwinnett County Public Library, Lawrenceville, GA Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
