Synopses & Reviews
In rhyming prose, sure to appeal to both children and their grown-up sous-chefs, this story is both informative and fun. Young readers spend a snowy northern afternoon in the warm kitchen with little Suzie, her dad and their zany sourdough circus, learning a simple method to bake wholesome and tangy sourdough bread.
Kids will be asking their parents for their very own sourdough starters once they see Eliska Liska's bright and playful sourdough creatures cavort, frolic, sing and dance, blow bubbles and get up to all kinds of trouble in order to make the bread rise.
Also included are illustrated recipes for other delicious sourdough baking, like yummy Yukon flap jacks, whole-grain sourdough bannock and a chocolate and vanilla sourdough cake, all tested by Suzie!
Wild yeast has never been wilder!
