Book 10: Madame Pamplemousse and Her Incredible Edibles

This was a darling little book that I stayed up too late reading and then finished this morning over coffee. It was refreshing little palate cleanser of a book-- like a scoop of champagne and berry sorbet. The story is nothing special, but the theme of kids vanquishing a nasty grown up and finding a warm, loving place in the world has been one of my favorites since I was a little girl. The names of people, places and foods are funny, crisp, classic. The drawings are reminiscent of those in the Eloise books. If you need to read something with a little girl in the age range of 5 to 8, I highly recommend this book. You should definitely cook something special and delicious after you read it.
