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.

A playful, scrumptious celebration of the joy of eating and never completely growing up, this picturebook is a fictional tale loosely inspired by the life of Julia Child - a story that should be taken with a grain of salt and a generous pat of butter.

Review:

Praise for Kyo Maclear

"..this works beautifully as a bad-day/bad-mood or animal-transformation tale, while readers who know actual depression will find it handled with tenderly forceful aplomb."" -- Starred review, "Kirkus Reviews "("Virginia Wolf")

"Parents will enjoy sharing this book with their sometimes 'wolfish' children." -- Starred review, "School Library Journal "("Virginia Wolf")

." . . an ambitious story about girlish blues, sisterly differences and the healing power of art . . ." -- "New York Times" ("Virginia Wolf")

"While some picture-book tales have difficulty promoting the 'different can be good' message without slipping into deep didacticism, Maclear's text feels nearly effortless. The inanimate-object identification also pairs brilliantly with Arsenault's melding of mixed media and digital art." -- Starred review, "Kirkus Reviews "("Spork")

PRAISE FOR Kyo Maclear:

"Knowledge of Virginia Woolf and her painter-sister Vanessa Bell is unncessary; this works beautifully as a bad-day/bad-mood or animal-transformation tale, while readers who know actual depression will find it handled with tenderly forceful aplomb." - Starred review, "Kirkus Reviews" ("Virginia Wolf")

"Parents will enjoy sharing this book with their sometimes 'wolfish' children." - Starred review, "School Library Journal "("Virigina Wolf")

." . . an ambitious story about girlish blues, sisterly differences and the healing power of art . . ." - "New York Times" ("Virigina Wolf")

"While some picture-book tales have difficulty promoting the 'different can be good' message without slipping into deep didacticism, Maclear's text feels nearly effortless. The inanimate-object identification also pairs brilliantly with Arsenault's melding of mixed media and digital art." - Starred review, "Kirkus Reviews" ("Spork")

PRAISE FOR "Julia, Child"
""Julia, Child" is not only a book about the joy of cooking, but the wonder of childhood, and, like the best cooking, is meant to be savored.... I guarantee it'll leave you hungry." - "The National Post"
"There is a dash of truth in [the idea that children are wise in ways that adults have forgotten]--enough to make quite appetizing this gracefully illustrated book." - "The Wall Street Journal"
"Maclear works in a genre that I believe she has invented: the fictional childhood anecdote of a famous person. Here she takes elements from the life of chef Julia (no-comma) Child and transposes them to the childhood of a little girl, also named Julia. Morstad's illustrations, which show children in full colour and adults in line-drawn black and white, are full of jokey details.... The sight of adults running amok is always a pleasure.... And what child has not come to the conclusion, along with Julia, that 'too many grown-ups don't have the proper ingredients'?" - Featured Review, "Quill and Quire"
..". a lighthearted ... allegory about inspiration and its gifts. Intriguing for an adult familiar with the real Julia and perhaps for the perceptive child who will understand that it's not about how old you are, or about what you cook, but about what you bring to the table." - "Kirkus Reviews"
"Elegant, airy illustrations enhance a charming picture book about two best friends.... The two girls concoct whimsical recipes to sweeten, calm and slow down the harried adults in their lives." ----49th Shelf (blog)
