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.

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.
The illustrations are gorgeous and the recipes all sound yummy.
Lovely lovely lovely.
Lots of great recipe ideas - and the added bonus of them being healthy means you dont feel guilty at all.
You do get alot of use our of this book as there are also so many recipes to choose from.
The story is also really sweet, a real tale of friendship.
A really lovely book. definitely one i recommend.
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.
