Mrs. Farquharson’s musings about books for children and young adults

Yummy Reading


blissThe Bliss family own a bakery, but they also have an ancient “Cookery Booke” that is kept locked up and a secret. When their parents go out of town, Rose and her siblings are supposed to make sure that nothing happens to their book, which the children are not allowed to use. When a stranger shows up and declares that she is Aunt Lily, Rose is enchanted with her exotic life and the meals that she makes. The Bliss children decide that just making one or two recipes certainly can’t hurt, so they experiment with the recipes for “Love Muffins” and “The Cookies of Truth”. The magic gets out of control, and Aunt Lucy might have secrets, too.

Bliss by Kathryn Littlewood (HarperCollins, 2012) is a tasty reading treat. Readers may want to head to the kitchen to bake some of their own families favorite desserts after reading it. I’m certain that they will want to read about the further adventures of the Bliss family in Littlewood’s second novel, A Dash of Magic (HarperCollins, 2013), and then they can devour her third tale, Bite-Sized Magic (HarperCollins, 2014).
