Editorial Reviews

Review

"Sweet Memories is thoroughly charming, enviably witty, utterly original and laugh-out-loud funny. I absolutely loved this book. It's the perfect gift and I intend to send a copy to every one of my girlfriends with a note saying, 'Why didn't we think of this?'"--Elizabeth Berg, author of The Handmaid and the Carpenter

Format: Hardcover
Very funny book with hysterical illustrations featuring real cookies in "everyday" situations. The story follows Fred and Ginger Bread as they date, marry, set up house, have children and fall prey to the foibles that strike us all. The little details are a riot (a scapbook includes "baby's first spatula", a hospital bill after a skiiing accident has a charge for "crumb reconstruction") and the cookies look good enough to eat. A great holiday gift idea - I'm going to give several.

Note: The story includes adult themes - this is NOT a children's book (but is all the funnier because of it!).

Format: Hardcover
I find myself going back to Sweet Memories over and over again as the hilarious humor is very obvious and also very subtle. I just now saw the subtitle "A Gingerbread Family Scrapbook" with the S askew making it Crapbook. It's a great book for those who need their laughter box fed.

The lives and adventures of Fred and Ginger Bread take us from marriage to the grave. The episode with the milkman and little daughter Cookie's schooling at the Our Lady of Immaculate Confection had me rolling in the aisles. It's a real keeper!
