The Lovereading4Kids comment
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.
Madame Pamplemousse and her Incredible Edibles by Rupert Kingfisher
Pterodactyl Bacon, scorpion tails in smoked garlic oil, and great squid tentacle in jasmine-scented jelly... Madame Pamplemousse's culinary delights provide a literary feast.
An exquisite fairy tale with shades of Angela Carter that will intrigue both adults and children alike
'A sophisticated book for sophisticated readers. Warmly recommended'
'Weird and wonderful concoctions, sweet and sour characters, and line drawing decoration by Sue Hellard are a recipe for success in this deliciously original little novel'
