Riding high on the Harry Potter boy-wizard wave, innovative KIDS introduces the Hocus-Pocus Magical Cookbook by Donna Boundy, illus. by Julia Gran. Complete with a magic, sparkly cooking wand, this book cooks up simple projects under magical titles of larger-than-life proportions, such as "To Keep Friends Forever: Dipped Cheese Sandwich" and "To Make Dreams Come True: Palm Readers' Pita Pockets" plus special names for ordinary ingredients ("fizzeroo" for club soda). Additionally, each recipe includes a box of information about nutrition, food facts or math and science brainteasers. The watercolor illustrations play up the flights of fancy. ( Apr.)
