    Comment on this review

    'A successful children's cookbook is not an easy thing to do but Phaidon has managed in spades. This charming book hits exactly the right note: childlike but not childish and neither intimidating nor patronising. ... The design is enchanting with colourful step-by-step drawings. A fabulous gift.' The Bookseller 'set to inspire budding cooks of 10 and over ... shows that it's never too early to start cooking ... Just the job for bored children on rainy half-term afternoons.' The Daily Telegraph 'the adorable bambino of The Silver Spoon ... an appealing idea, sweetly done ... each step accompanied by a charming, hand-holding illustration.' Mail on Sunday 'Colorful, cleverly illustrated.' The New York Times Magazine 'The Silver Spoon for Children serves up 40 authentic, healthy recipes?The book's whimsical illustrations are easy to follow.'
