Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 2-4-- A rather precious narrative about the abilities and desires of teddy bears is the only deterrent in this cookbook. Otherwise, it's a fine collection of 12 recipes for various occasions and locations. All the recipes (each serves four) are for simple, made-from-scratch, nutritious food; the directions are clear and there are safety rules. The watercolor illustrations, often full-page, show cozy, elegant scenes. The birthday feast is set in a lush, green backyard in which the dressed-up bears are seated at a wooden table, where they enjoy fruit fizz punch and vegetable and cheese pitas. The recipes can be made by beginning cooks, who are encouraged to make the presentation and the atmosphere as festive as possible. This inviting volume suggests that the variety of picnics is limited only by one's imagination. --Carolyn Jenks, Oyster River Elementary Sch ., Durham, NH

Meet the Author

Alexandra Day and her husband, Harold Darling, established the Green Tiger Press in 1970. In 1983, Harold and Sandra were visiting Zurich, Switzerland, when they came across a volume of old German picture sheets, one of which featured a poodle playing with a baby who was supposed to be taking a nap. This image provided the inspiration for "Good Dog, Carl," which successfully began what would become an increasingly popular picture book series. The Darling's own dog, a Rottweiler named Toby, was the model for the first book's main character. Since then, three other Darling Rottweilers have posed as Carl in the sequels. The Darlings now live in Seattle, Washington, where they have a ten-thousand-book library, primarily filled with illustrated children's books.
