Gr 3-6–This Halloween-centered book is full of recipes and vivid photographs that will appeal to a reader’s stomach. The recipes are eclectic and feature clever scary names: Moonlit Bog Dip, a type of spinach dip; Ghoul Drool Spud Skins, a new twist on twice baked potatoes; and Frog Eye Nibbles, a snack of vegetables and melted cheese on French bread. Parents interested in cooking with kids will like these easy-to-follow recipes because they are simple and short. Tips and tricks at the beginning of the book discuss safe cooking and chopping skills. Kids learn food presentation as well as knife and piping skills and how to use a broiler. All ingredients are fairly common and easy to acquire.
VERDICT An excellent addition to the library holiday book collection.
