My anxiously awaited title this week is:
Bon Appetit: The Delicious Life of Julia Child by Jessie Hartland
Publication Date: May 22, 2012
Publisher: Random House
Audience: Primary/Middle Grade
Follow Julia Child—chef, author, and television personality—from her childhood in Pasadena, California, to her life as a spy in WWII, to the cooking classes she took in Paris, to the publication of Mastering the Art of French Cooking, to the funny moments of being a chef on TV. This is a comprehensive and enchanting picture book biography, told in many panels and jam-packed with lively, humorous, and child-friendly details. Young chefs and Julia Child fans will exclaim, "ooooh la la," about this book, which is as energetic and eccentric as the chef herself.
Having read Julia Child's memoir, I love the idea of her life being a children's picture book. The picture on the cover alone has already endeared me to this book.
