A Hungry Reader Cooks Her Way through Great Books
From the breakfast

chocolate cupcakes with peppermint buttercream from Jonathan Franzen's
The Corrections, these books and the tasty treats in them put her on the
road to happiness
There is no better combo than books and food- maybe we need to add travel as well to make it supreme.
This book is all about books and food. Out student librarians did a "Master-chef" based on this idea. We had Winnie the Pooh, we did lord of the Rings, Percy Jackson and Alice in Wonderland. The students loved it and they made stunning dishes.
This book has a similar idea- it looks at three levels - childhood books, teenage books and adults books. In the childrens section we have Pippi Long stockings Buttermilk Pancakes and Charlotte's Web- pea and Bacon Soup- oh no poor Wilbur!!!.
In the Teenage section we have To Kill A Mockingbird - Molasses Butter and in the adults section we have Gone Girls -brown butter Crepes!
Theer are over fifty recipes and each one is attached to a book and has a great description come essay as to why the recipe matches the story. The problem for me now is I cannot stop thinking about what foods are attached to all my favorite books!
AN IRRESISTIBLE LITERARY FEAST Stories and recipes inspired by the world's great books Beautifully
illustrated, clever, and full of heart, Voracious will satisfy anyone
who loves a fantastic meal with family and friends-or curling up with a
great novel for dessert.

Because you all love Wally so much- we bought you some new books! Enjoy and keep Wally's whereabouts a secret!!

We travel through past and present, lives come together and are held together by strands of pain, cruelty, hardship, brutality, music and love. Throughout is the image of birds, some broken and battered, some who manage to fly. Some who sing. The writer knows exactly what she’s doing and takes us with her. I could not stop reading.” —Renée Taukiri was born into sorrow. Auē can be heard in the sound of the sea he loves and hates, and in the music he draws out of the guitar that was his father’s. It spills out of the gang violence that killed his father and sent his mother into hidi
