Summary

Summary

"This is a cookbook with attitude...will appeal to kids any time of the day...The treats are easy to prepare...all are fun to make and eat. Bold color photographs highlight almost every spread, with sleepovers pictured for boys and girls...Safety tips are headlined."--School Library Journal. It's all about the food! Every sleepover needs fun meals and yummy snacks, and a tasty time is guaranteed for all when everyone whips up these lip-smacking treats, from Sticky Popcorn Balls to Fluffy S'mores. These recipes have been created just for kids--who will happily tell Mom and Dad they've got dinner covered (with a little bit of help!). First, it's Chicken Pot Pie for the supper, then when the lights go out and hunger strikes it's time for Chewy Pretzel Letters. Wake up and have a breakfast of Banana Nut French Toast, chow down on a brunch of Tuna Meltdowns, and celebrate a birthday surprise with Favorite Chocolate Cake. Every recipe has notes explaining just how easy it is to make, how much time it takes, and whether or not it needs cooking on the stove or in the oven--some (like the Peanut Butter and Jelly Cake and Nutty Milkshakes) don't! Youngsters will take over the kitchen with pleasure.

School Library Journal Review

Gr 4-8-Sleeping is the last thing that happens at a sleepover, and it is usually sandwiched in between meals and snacks. The recipes here would fit any number of occasions, but are arranged in "sleepover order." Beginning with "Starter Snacks," Warshaw proceeds to dinners, "Sacktime Snacks," breakfasts, and brunch, and then concludes with a special section of "Birthday Surprises." The treats are easy to prepare, some incorporating ready-to-use ingredients like canned soup and refrigerated biscuit dough. Each recipe begins with a list of supplies and a difficulty rating. "Chewy Pretzel Letters," "Creative Crepes," "Biscuit-Bite Pizza," "Fundue," "Confetti Taco Salad," and "Fluffy S'mores" all are fun to make and eat. Bold color photographs highlight almost every spread, with sleepovers pictured for boys and for girls. Ethnic representation is balanced, and a girl with Down's syndrome is included. This is a cookbook with attitude, especially in its commentary, which takes a wry approach to interactions between partyers and parents. Safety tips are headlined, "Read This or Die!" and feature comical worst-case scenarios for violators. Joan Scobey's The Fannie Farmer Junior Cookbook (Little, Brown, 2000) is a more comprehensive, newly updated source of recipes for this age group. Still, The Sleepover Cookbook will appeal to kids any time of day.-Joyce Adams Burner, Hillcrest Library, Prairie Village, KS (c) Copyright 2010.
