Gr 3-5-``Children/Cooking/Fantasy/Multicultural'' is the designation that appears on the back of this book; it's an odd combination that doesn't work very well. The four stories, written in a pedestrian, condescending tone, are a mishmash of well-behaved multicultural youngsters, leprechauns, talking unicorns, dragons, and folk tales. The 40 vegan (excluding not only meat, fish, and poultry, but also eggs and dairy products) recipes that comprise the other half of the volume have names that attempt to relate them to the stories. The recipes are clearly written and nutritious. Great pains are taken to suggest adult help with knives, etc.; each admonition ends with a smiley face that may annoy readers. Dishes include Israeli Carrot Salad, Mexican Succotash, and Mitsue's Chinese Stir-fried Vegetables & Pineapple. Uninspiring green-and-black drawings illustrate the text. Micah Pulleyn and Sarah Bracken's Kids in the Kitchen (Sterling, 1993) is a better choice, but it is a vegetarian, not vegan, cookbook.-Carolyn Jenks, First Parish Unitarian Church, Portland, ME
