Editorial Reviews


“It’s so cozy and cheerful, readers will crave more than just this taste of Hamlet’s adventures anyway.”—Kirkus Reviews

“Steeped in the literary tradition that features an idyllic English landscape peopled by dressed animals, the…interesting stories and gentle illustrations combine to create an atmosphere of cozy charm.”—Booklist

Most Helpful Customer Reviews

Format: Hardcover
Young Hamlet the pig loves to cook but when he inherits a cafe from his uncle, set in Sniggery Woods, he's more than in his element in the kitchen - and outside of it. Gorgeous color drawings throughout invite kids to the compelling world of Hamlet and his food passions.
