Waiting on Wednesday: Bon Appetit: The Delicious Life of Julia Child

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Breaking the Spine and is meant to showcase upcoming books that you can't wait to read.

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
Pages: 48
Genre: Biography
Audience: Primary/Middle Grade

From Goodreads:
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.


  1. Interesting looking book! I love looking at Julia Child recipes (even though I haven't really tried any) and this looks like an interesting book that my nieces might enjoy.

    Here's my WoW:

  2. This sounds good! I'm adding it to my TBR list.
