Product Description

Book Description

Discover the utterly delicious and very pretty world of Florentine and Pig: fun-packed stories with extra-special crafty stuff and lip-smacking recipes - all bundled into a completely gorgeous book!

About the Author

Florentine and Pig is the brainchild of singer-songwriter Eva Katzler. Working with children of all ages in summer camps, Eva quickly became aware that kids had forgotten - or had never known - the simple pleasures of getting a little messy with their hands. She devised the delightful partnership of Florentine and Pig as a way of encouraging children (and adults!) to rediscover the joys of making things together.

Jess Mikhail graduated from Loughborough University in 2002 and has illustrated books for well-known authors such as Giles Andreae, Julia Donaldson and Jeanne Willis. Jess loves to draw and create funny characters that make people smile. She works in mixed media by scanning fabrics, scribbling, blobbing, mono-printing and photographing.

My daughter has just received this as a gift and I really enjoyed reading it. It is highly original in that Florentine plans a picnic complete with menu and then all the recipes are in the back of the book. My 5 year old daughter is very excited to try them out - will have to let you know.
The book is very girly (quite flowery) but my son was quite happen to listen to the story - [probably as he is only 3.)
The best part of the story is when it is all hands on deck preparing the picnic: pig gets all the good tasks - he slurped, sloshed, laughed and licked whilst poor Florentine just got to chop, chunk dice and dance.... Charming illustrations. Destined to be a favourite in our house - if the book doesn't get too sticky from trying out the recipes.
Like any new kids' product, the commercialisation starts on day one so the accompanying website is up and running with links to Ocado which is a bit off putting. There are some fairly barmy craft ideas there. Personally, I prefer the book. The website is definitely aimed at little girls and their yummy mummies.

A lovely and beautifully illustrated book, an engaging story and wonderful characters. I think the crafts and recipes at the end of the story was a brilliant idea and a great way to involve children in the story. I understand there are more Florentine and Pig books to come and I predict F&P will become the next big thing!

It's not often that you come across a book for young children that makes you, the adult,
feel good. Well done to Eva Katzler for achieving just that. Perhaps it's the relationship between Florentine and her friend Pig - they're a real team - or maybe it's just that the book is such fun to read.

I've already bought a number of copies for my friends' grandchildren and the feedback has been glowing. Jess Mikhail's illustrations are glorious providing lots to talk about on every page. My young 6 year old friend, Natasha, had great fun copying Florentine's expressions and actions, whilst her younger brother insisted on putting a bowl on his head, pretending to be Pig! In addition to the lovely story, there are easy and yet interesting recipes for youngsters to follow. The apple and carrot muffins were a real success and when we next meet up, I've had to promise that we'll make Sticky Red Onion Hummus. Delighted to see that there is another F&P book to follow.

My niece was given this book (age 6) and it is so wonderful I have just bought it for another niece (age 3) and I am sure she is going to enjoy it just as much. The first niece has read the book repeatedly, has made all the recipes and done all the activities in just over a week! Not to mention the organisation of picnics every day since then! I also love the story and the illustrations (age 33) and am now itching for the second book. Thanks Eva Katzler for sharing this with us :)

What a brilliant idea! Florentine & Pig set out to have a picnic, and the story takes us through all the thrills and spills that go into making the perfect picnic spread - and best of all, the scrumptious recipes and craft ideas are included. This is a lovely concept, with an infectious sense of fun that finds the joy in getting messy and creative. The writing is playful and great to read out loud; the artwork is zany and vibrant. A definite family favourite.
