This wonderful book is sure to delight young boys and girls who
are interested in cooking. The story follows a ten-year-old boy
named Pierre whose family runs a little restaurant in France. Although
Pierre is interested in cooking, his parents discourage his involvement
in the family business. One day he is given the opportunity to
help his family and the restaurant in a meaningful way.
The illustrations in the book are just lovely and bring the restaurant
and the townspeople to life.
Children like to know they are involved in their families and
can contribute in important ways. My eight-year-old son will certainly
enjoy the story when he receives the book for Christmas. I think
I'm going to plan a few cooking adventures with him before then.
