Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“Fun and simplicity are emphasized in this sure-to-become iconic cookbook that offers functional and edible dietary mainstays that the whole family will enjoy”—School Library Journal

“For young cooks interested in playful pasta projects.”—Library Journal

“Who ever thought there could be so many different types of pasta—and so many fun, creative ways to prepare and serve it? [Noodlemania!] fills a quirky niche in kids’ cookbooks.”—Booklist

“Not just for kids, customers of all ages will become pasta afficionados when they get a look at this fun-filled book.”—Anna Jedrziewski, Retailing Insight

Library Journal
Barlow (Easy Cut-up Cakes for Kids), with help from photographer Zac Williams (Little Monsters Cookbook) and illustrator Alison Oliver, invites kids to tackle recipes such as sea horse salad, where dyed pasta "sea horses" are garnished with spinach "seaweed," and gnome home pasta, where a tomato-topped boiled egg masquerades as a toadstool. These clever recipes rely on pantry staples and are easy enough for most children to make with a little help and supervision. Quirky illustrations appear throughout. VERDICT For young cooks interested in playful pasta projects. Children looking for more sophisticated recipes and techniques might enjoy Abigail Johnson Dodge's The Kid's Cookbook: A Great Book for Kids Who Love To Cook or Betty Crocker Kids Cook!
School Library Journal
Gr 5–8—Totem Pole Tortellini, Ladybug Salad, and a Purple Pasta Monster are just a few of the edible creations kids can help prepare that will tantalize the taste buds of young foodies. They will also learn fun facts about noodles such as that spaghetti lunghi con archetto measures up to four feet in length and can be used to create delicious Rapunzel Noodles. Sections of this cookbook are roughly organized by shape, e.g., "Twisted and Twirly," "Wheels and Whatever," etc., and the appealing format includes colorful graphic drawings and stick figures as well as scrumptious photographs of completed recipes sure to make children giggle and drool. Fun and simplicity are emphasized in this sure-to-become iconic cookbook that offers functional and edible dietary mainstays that the whole family will enjoy.—Kathryn Diman, Bass Harbor Memorial Library, Bernard, ME
