This fun cookbook for kids is well designed and really useful. Each of the 27 recipes takes up a page spread. On one side is the recipe, on the other a full-page color photo of the food. Better still, the book has a hidden spiral binding, so it lies flat on a kitchen counter. Focused mainly on French cuisine, the recipes range from easy to "master chef" and are divided into five sections: breakfast; lunch; breads, salads and soups; dinner; and desserts. Each includes an extra tip, such as how to flip a crepe or what bread works best for French toast.

Here are the recipes:

BREAKFAST
* Colette's Crepes
* Ooh La La French Toast
* Remy's Famous Omelets
* French Breakfast Muffins

LUNCH
* Gusteau's Grilled Cheese
* Croque Monsieur
* Quiche Lorraine
* Easy Faux Escargots (using gherkin pickles for snails, tortilla-wrap slices for shells)
* Crazy Cheese Straws
* Cheese Fondue

BREADS, SOUPS AND SALADS
* A Classic Baguette
* Vichyssoise
* Chef's Salad
* Salad Nicoise
* Dijon Vinaigrette

DINNER
* Gusteau's Ratatouille
* Linguini Alfredo with Peas
* C'est Magnifique Salmon (with lemon and dill sauce)
* Remy's Macaroni and Cheese
* Pizza Rats (the slices use black olives for eyes and noses)
* Oven-Baked French Fries

DESSERTS
* Colette's Apron Cake
* Django's Dirt Cake (a brownie-like cake decorated with gummy bears and plastic rats)
* Cheery Cheesecakes
* Chocolate Bouchons (from California celebrity chef Thomas Keller)
* Chocolate Rats (chocolate-coated apricot bodies with licorice whiskers, peanut-half ears and rolled Starbursts for the tails)
* Eiffel Tower Cookie Sundae (with the tower made from sugar wafers)

With gorgeous photos, cute artwork inspired by the movie "Ratatouille" and a nice mix of serious and silly recipes, this is a cookbook kids could really get into.

REAL recipes for REAL food, all in an easy-to-read, clear and uncluttered format. It's not just a book showing how to make your food into cute animals, or 100 ways to use peanut butter. Food you can serve the whole family, using mature but totally accessible ingrediants such as yeast and potatoes, to make some of the foods you know your kids would love if they'd only give them a try -- like Quiche Lorraine and Linguini Alfredo with Peas. And they'll probably try them if they make them! A fantastic cookbook, for any age cook.

Spiral bound and very easy to use in the kitchen. Wonderful recipes, though all require adult assistance. Beautifully illustrated with color photos. This is not your average kid's PB&J cookbook!

Wonderful!! My 13-year-old daughter, who has been cooking some for a couple years, has really enjoyed this book. It has some simple recipes for younger kids or complete beginners, plus more complicated ones for older kids. Tasty food, too! The attachment to the movie also makes it fun. Very glad I bought it!

My son is going to have a Ratatouille birthday party, so I bought this as a gift for him and an idea source for the menu. There are many cute recipes for kids (love the Eiffel Towers made with sugar wafers & I think we will have the kids make their own at the party!) I think a kid would look through this and want to make the recipes. The ingredient lists are short & easy. The pictures are big, vibrant, and make the food look appealing. It is true, that some of the "recipes" are more just making easy food cute, but it is a kid's cookbook and that is fun for kids! I think there is a good mix of the cute food and the more in-depth recipes. A very young child can help with the simpler cute recipes while an older child can help tackle the more in-depth ones. There are several things, as an adult, that I want to make (like the ratatouille!). All in all, I'm very happy with this purchase.

First of all, I must compliment the seller. Not only did this book come as promised, but the seller sent me a nice little thank you note plus a note to be careful when opening the bubble wrapped book.
My little grandson checked this book out numerous times from the library. Now he has his own and can make the cheese sticks and escargot to his heart's content.

I watched the movie and when I saw the cookbook it interested me. Since I am recently retired and my wife is still working, I decided that this book might get me started on some simple cooking. The recipes are pretty simple and are easy to understand. A few are more involved, but most are easy and fun. The spiral bound book makes it easy to read or lay flat on the counter. I would recommend this book for anyone wanting a good start for cooking.
