In the kitchen of a young girl and her mother, anthropomorphic appliances and ingredients, like Viki (the Viking range) and Patty (a pat of butter), help Slice (a piece of bread) realize his dream of becoming French Toast.
The story is charming, the illustrations are delightful, and the recipes are simple yet tasty. And at under $9, this book is something you'll want to buy for every child you know.
If you're from the Kansas City area, you'll recognize --or perhaps even know-- the award-winning chefs who contributed the five recipes included in the book. If you're not, it doesn't matter. Your family will still love the recipes, and you'll love the excuse to read to and then cook with your kids.
