Publisher Comments:

In this lovely valentine of a book, Julie Paschkis offers young readers a glimpse of the extraordinary world that can be hidden in the simplest of things. Alfonso loves his colorful, magical existence. He also loves the brilliant, beautiful Ida. But Ida, nose in a book, just doesnand#8217;t seem to notice. Can he win her heart with a cake of his own creation if the salt is gathered from the deep blue ocean, the butter from the summer sun, and flour like snowflakes from a night sky? An exquisitely illustrated story about imagination for children, but also a wonderful gift for lovestruck adults. (A treasured family recipe for apple cake included!)

Jennifer Starkman, July 7, 2007 (view all comments by Jennifer Starkman)
If you wanted to bake an apple pie, but found the store closed when you went to buy the ingredients, what would you do? Why, travel the world to gather them from their original sources, of course!
In a story that charmingly brings to mind current gourmet trends promoting the use of local ingredients and food prepared lovingly from scratch, the protagonist of How to Make an Apple Pie literally travels the globe, gathering each of the ingredients for her pie. Priceman has managed to create a story that is not only entertaining, but provides a simple-yet-vivid lesson on geography and the origins and preparation of the foods we eat, in language simple enough for a preschooler to enjoy and understand
