Description

A charming, whimsically illustrated picture book about joie de vivre, told from the perspective of a child named Julia who loves to cook. Sure to be savored by readers of all ages.

     Julia and Simca are two young friends who agree that you can never use too much butter -- and that it is best to be a child forever. Sharing a love of cooking and having no wish to turn into big, busy people who worry too much and dawdle too little, they decide to create a feast for growing and staying young. A playful, scrumptious celebration of the joy of eating, the importance of never completely growing up and mastering the art of having a good time, Julia, Child is a fictional tale loosely inspired by the life and spirit of the very real Julia Child -- a story that should be taken with a grain of salt and a generous pat of butter.

Editorial Review

Parents Canada Favorite Children’s Book
PRAISE FOR Julia, Child:
"Julia, Child is not only a book about the joy of cooking, but the wonder of childhood, and, like the best cooking, is meant to be savored.... I guarantee it'll leave you hungry." --The National Post
"Maclear works in a genre that I believe she has invented: the fictional childhood anecdote of a famous person." --Quill & Quire
"... a lighthearted ... allegory about inspiration and its gifts. Intriguing for an adult familiar with the real Julia and perhaps for the perceptive child who will understand that it's not about how old you are, or about what you cook, but about what you bring to the table." --Kirkus Reviews
"If the combination of Canadian gems Julie Morstad and Kyo Maclear doesn't fill your heart with joy I don't know what will." --Vikki VanSickle, author of If I Had a Gryphon
"Toronto-based author Kyo Maclear presents a story that celebrates the joy of eating, the art of having a good time and the importance of never fully growing up." --West of the City
"A playful, scrumptious celebration of the joy of eating, the importance of never completely growing up and mastering the art of having a good time [...] a story that should be taken with a grain of salt and a generous pat of butter." --49th Shelf (blog)
