Julia, Child

$37.00

A book of friendship, food and unhurried delights that has been specially cooked for all ages.

Julia and Simca are two young friends who agree that you can never use too much butter-and that it is best to be a child forever. Sharing a love of cooking and having no wish to turn into big, busy people who worry too much and dawdle too little, they decide to create a feast for growing and staying young.

A playful, scrumptious celebration of the joy of eating, the importance of never completely growing up and mastering the art of having a good time, Julia, Child is a fictional tale loosely inspired by the life and spirit of the very real Julia Child-a story that should be taken with a grain of salt and a generous pat of butter.

 “This ebullient children’s book recasts Julia Child’s friendship with Simone Beck, a.k.a. Simca, as the tale of two girls (Julia on roller skates) who think that grown-ups do not “know how to have a marvellous time” and make it their mission to cure them with cheese soufflé and peach compote.”
