A World Book Day 'Recommended Read' for 2011
Magical recipes lie at the heart of this beautifully charming story about a mysterious woman and her even more mysterious – but very magical – gastronomic secrets. Downtrodden by her greedy and dishonest uncle Monsieur Lard in whose restaurant, The Squealing Pig, she is forced to work, Madeline makes the lucky discovery of Madame Pamplemousse and her cat Camebert. When the three become friends, Madeleine learns the secrets that will bring her wicked uncle down… Beautifully produced, this is a delightfully foody story with some very very strong goodies – and baddies.
