Product Description

Review

Designed for five-year-olds this will, I suspect, appeal to the little girl within us all. Not a cookbook as such but a charming beautifully illustrated handbook for doll's tea-parties and fairy picnics. A great stocking filler. Make sure you wrap it in pink tissue. (Bookseller)

"Mud Pies" delights because, like the very best children's books, it gives young folks their due. Winslow's recipes appeal to the considerable wit, sophistication and imaginary prowess of many young children. Unlike the oft-tiresome 21st-century whimsy of, say, Pixar films, it also does so without winking insisently at parents... Winslow's book is a gem. If the humour and brio of "Mud Pies" feels somewhat dated, well, that only shows what a shame it is that such offerings are now so few and far between. (Economist)

Charming. (Daily Telegraph)

Any child who has access to a garden or a seashore, will still find hours of amusement among the pages of this cleverly thought out culinary extravaganza. (Carousel)

Format: Paperback
A great book for all children! A mini masterpiece. "Mud Pies" features creative and easy to prepare backyard recipes for the littlest cooks. All natural ingredients such as flowers, dirt, sand, leaves and imagination are used in every wonderful dish. Menus include "Stuffed Seashells" and "Wood Chip Dip," "Mud Puddle Soup," "Dandelion Souffle," "Roast Rocks" and "Pine Needle Upside-Down Cake," even children who have every toy in the store will ask to turn off the TV so they can go outside and cook a gourmet meal for their dolls. This book was recently reprinted because so many parents remembered it from their own childhoods and wanted to share some muddy magic with the kids of the 90s! Absolutely timeless.

I remember this book from my own childhood. I never actually owned a copy, but I checked it out of the library practically every week. It's a wonderful, wonderful book for little girls (and probably boys too!).

I grew up with the first printing of this book. It's a very special and whimsical approach - handled for the 'grown-up' sensibility of a 6 six old girl. My copy is always near by for a giggle, and I plan to gift one each to all the doll party hostesses I know. I hope these recipes for sweet memories will be as enduring for them as they have been for me.
