Book Reviews:

– Cassandra **The Bibliophagist** rated -it was amazing
A great way for children to explore other cultures. I loved the recipes added in. Every time we read one, my son would ask if we could make it. It was engaging and funny but emotional at times as well. I think my favorite part was that she used memories at times. Food is something that connects us, it is highly associated with memories and experiences. This author takes advantage of it and creates a wonderful book for children. (See Goodreads Reviews).
– As a retired teacher, I am often asked to suggest books for my friends’ children and grandchildren. Ruby Foo is great fun to read, and the recipes make one’s mouth water! I took a look at the website,, and was delighted to discover the historical background for the book, including the identity of the original Ruby Foo. and her surprising relation to the author. I look forward to seeing more books in the series. (See Amazon Reviews).
