More About the Author

Jennie's personal website is: www.jenniemaizels.com

Jennie was born in London in 1970. Her Mother and Father met at Chelsea School of Art and are both artists. They now run the art magazine 'Raw Vision'. Jennie went to Central St. Martins School of Art to study Illustration. where her graduation show included a life-sized replica of Alice in Wonderland's Tea Party, made out of Paper Mache!

Jennie's first commission was to design and make the window displays of Harvey Nichols department store as part of London fashion week. She produced a number of nationwide window displays for The Body Shop and Dillons Bookstores. Jennie has always enjoyed working in 3-D, so pop-up books were a natural transition.

After leaving college she had the wonderful fortune of being introduced to Kate Petty. Kate was a truly fabulous and very talented children's book writer.

Jennie and Kate became inseparable, working on eight books together over Sixteen years. The books they have produced have sold over a million copies worldwide.

"The Great Grammar Book" was nominated for Children's Book of the Year 1999 and "The Global Garden" was winner of the Aventis Prize 2006. Very sadly, Kate died on May 22nd 2007. Jennie misses her very much, but is continuing to work on pop books; Jennie has since worked with Kate's son Will Petty on 'My Pop Up Body Book' which has just been published.

In 2009, Jennie started up 'Clothes Plasters'; beautiful, embroidered iron-on patches. A very successful little product, selling in John lewis, Liberty and hundreds more shops in the UK and abroad.

Jennie's favourite things are; collecting old shop letters, cooking very tall cakes, sketching on holidays, eating mangos and spying on her little girls when they're dancing in their bedrooms!

Jennie lives in Hampshire with her husband and two children (and Dotty the dog)

Format: Hardcover
An excellent guide for anyone feeding a child old enough to have sense of independence, but young enough to have difficulty with the etiquette of cutlery! The basic information sections should help compile a storecupboard of easily obtainable and useful fallback ingredients, and the recipes are easy to follow, and often quick to make. The results have the approval of my 20 month old child!! The aim is to provide good, nutritious and non-faddy meals which are easily (and not too messily) eaten without use of cutlery - although we have progressed, helped by the dips section of this book, to more use of a spoon, via vbegatble and fruit finger and mini pittas. The author wanted to make mealtimes fun and enjoyable, instead of a battleground, and I think succeeds. Particular highpoints - mini muffins (as popular with grown up family as small people), fishcakes and homemade ketchup and guacamole. My only criticism, if I had to make one, is that the use of cartoon style drawings may be more attractive to the children eating the food than adults preparing it, and I would have like to see proper pictures of the intended end results - but frankly, this is being picky in the extreme with a book I have been very well pleased with and have made much use of! I would happily recommend this to any parent who likes to know what goes into their child's food, and wants to be confident that the food will literally go down well, but doesn't want to spend hours scouring shops for exotic and hard to find ingredients, or hours preparing and cooking meals. The guidance on storage and freezing is exceptionally clear and concise, and the nutritional information extends to a short specific note on every dish included, as well as general comment. A small but invaluable guide!

Great little book, good and not to difficult recipes that are often quite quick, and ideal for a little person very keen on independence just like my little one.
Helpful info on freezability, easy to adapt, if you wish to, with a realistic philosophy aiming for stress-less mealtimes.
I would recommend this book (and have done so) to all my friends.

Alleluia! A book that aims to have babies and toddlers eating 'grown-up' food. In today's culture of kiddy menus, and food marketed purely at children, we need a lot more of this kind of book. And the recipes are lovely. The healthy banana cakes get rave reviews all around, even when made by me!

My 20 month old son is very choosy about what he eats, but loves savoury and sweet biscuits and snacks (much to my horror). As well as the huge selection of recipes in this book, there are also recipes for biscuits, snacks and treats so at least I know he's not eating processed junk. Each recipe gives details of the 'nutritional value' in plain English. I'm writing this review today as I'm in Amazon to order a copy for a girlfriend having similar eating problems with her 13 month old girl.

Highly recommended. This book contains great recipes which my son has really enjoyed and are quick and easy to cook using everyday food. Nutritional value of foods are broken down for each recipe which is really useful for any mother worried about what they are giving their little ones. I must have buy!!

I've just come on to buy this book having renewed it from the library too many times! I'm doing the "baby led weaning" approach to weaning my baby (finger foods from the start) and my 8 month old has been loving the baby quiches, mini cornish pasties and stuffed pancakes for well over a month already. This book has given me loads of ideas and my husband and I enjoy the recipes too! I have made loads of some of the more freezable recipes and have them stockpiled in the freezer for those after-work nights. And above all, my baby is eating good, wholesome, unprocessed, home-made, non-pureed real food.

I have an 8 month old who has decided she would much rather feed herself than be fed, so i turned to this book to get ideas on finger food so she would at least be getting some variety. Unfortunately, I found it aimed far more at toddlers than babies with the only reference to babies being 'first finger foods' of the rather obvious fruit and veg. Even for the toddlers, I found that many of the recipes involved creating a patty of some sort and then frying it, a method of cooking I tend to avoid.

This book has changed meal times with my toddler for the better. We had got to the point where he would only eat plain boiled noodles, and I was getting worried, then I bought this book, and now he and I are both much happier. We are vegetarian, and all the recipes in here are either veggie or Jenny offers a way to make them veggie, which is fantastic. The first cook book I have ever bought where I actually want to try all the recipes. I have bought one for all the mums I know, and I can't recommend it enough. Great for veggies and non veggies, from as soon as your little one can hold a rusk until they leave home. Just brilliant.
