Product Details


“This charming and fastidiously complete resource has been reissued thankfully by the New York Review Children’s Collection…. Mud Pies delights because, like the very best children’s books, it gives young folks their due. Winslow’s recipes appeal to the considerable wit, sophistication and imaginative prowess of many young children…. Winslow’s book is a gem.” —Prospero, on The Economist website

“When I was about five years old, Granny gave me my first cookbook—Mud  Pies and Other Recipes. Even though it was a pretend cookbook, it somehow persuaded me that real cooking must be fun.”—Sara Moulton

“This is a free spirited, mildly subversive little cook book for dolls…the minutely observed, densely crosshatched drawings are the work of the late Danish-born illustrator, Erik Blegvad.”—Kim Koch and Rod Clarke, Scout Magazine (CAN) 

“Designed for five-year olds, this will, I suspect, appeal to the little girl within us all…a charming beautifully illustrated handbook for doll’s tea-parties and fairy picnics. A great stocking filler. Make sure you wrap it in pink tissue.” –The Bookseller (UK)
