The Lovereading4Kids comment

A witch’s cookbook, this is not surprisingly full of gruesome humour for those with strong stomachs. Esmelia Sniff is a world renowned witch and she knows a thing or two about the very best ways of cooking children. Follow her method and list of ingredients carefully and you can enjoy Hagboogers with Lumpy Sauce and French Guys, Seared Tina in Boy Sauce on a Bed of Fragrant Lice and many appetising dishes!

Synopsis

How to Cook Children by Martin Howard

An hilarious send up of an established form, superbly illustrated, will appeal to children and adults alike. Laugh-out-loud funny, this unique children's book presents 'delicious' recipes from witches around the world. Every dish has one thing in common: the main ingredients are CHILDREN! In the classic, gruesome style typical of children's authors such as Roald Dahl, this book is a ten-year-old's paradise - filled to the brim with bogies, squashed frogs, zombie chickens and the funniest witches ever seen. Many witches have contributed, from Barfa Stew-Wart in the United States, France's favourite Mad Elaine de la Moustache, to Britain's very own Janie Groviller.

Reviews

Quite simply the best book for cooking with children ever written. The recipes are mouth-watering and Esmelia Sniff is a laugh-out-loud kitchen nightmare. There are very few chefs who can change the way we think about food, but thanks to Esmelia and her pointy-hatted friends I'll be putting youngsters on the menu in all my restaurants from now on.

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

A great way to introduce kids to great books, authors & genres. Parents can find age-appropriate books to share with their children.
