The Little Crooked Bookshelf

This week's pick is by Cottager: Anika Denise

How To Bake A Book
by Ella Burfoot
What it's all about . . .
A little girl learns the recipe for making the perfect story. A pinch of good, a dash of bad, some big words, and carefully cut out characters are the ingredients for a truly delicious read.

Why it’s on the Crooked Bookshelf . . .
We are a Cottage of writers who also happen to love baking—so this book tickled both fancies.

Our favorite lines . . .
"Turn up the heat-
the bubbles quicken.
And then my plot
begins to thicken."

Our favorite illustration . . .

From HOW TO BAKE A BOOK. Copyright 2014 by Ella Burfoot.

Why kids will love it . . .
The clever rhyming text and whimsical illustrations will tempt young readers to bake up a book of their own.

Why grown-ups will love it . . .
Adults (and teachers, especially) will find this a fun way to introduce children to the essential ingredients of a great story.
