5.0 out of 5 stars Not just for older kids, April 4, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Art & Max (Hardcover)
This is my two year old son's favorite book. I bought it because I was so impressed by the illustrations and I assumed that it would be a book he would enjoy when he was a little older. I think this book appeals to him because he loves dinosaurs. It is my hope that he will continue to love the book and has he gets older, will appreciate the subtle moments of humor--the Pink Floyd album, the expressions on the smaller lizard's faces, and the details on the *ACME* appliances.

5.0 out of 5 stars What I want to know,, June 3, 2004
How, exactly, is this book misleading? Nowhere on the cover does it claim to be vegetarian. And where is it inscribed that Moosewood must always and only every time put out vegetarian recipes? Pay more attention next time. This is not a case of a book being misleading, but of readers being too lazy to double check the index.

3.0 out of 5 stars let me tell you what this book is great for, February 6, 2004
Admittedly, this cookbook amounts to little more than an extended vegan pamphlet (or 'zine for those of you indie-pub types). Having said that, however, I will tell you what this book does well, something precious few vegan cookbooks bother with. It makes vegan eating possible for poor students, working stiffs, and others with little time to cook and limited access to farmer's markets, co-ops, or overpriced yuppie organic health food stores.

Now, not all vegan cookbooks are complicated and not all vegan recipes require exotic foods. However, very few authors ever suggest using the kinds of convenience ingredients found in this book. Typically, and for good reasons, they advocate using only the freshest of the fresh organic, happy hippie food products from the aforementioned stores. Moreover, this book is not overloaded with the whys and how-tos of vegan eating, something I find pretentious, militant, and redundant.

You do not have to flip through this book to find one or two time-saving, inexpensive, short ingredient list recipes; all of these recipes are such. The end results are not bland, but they are also not the wacky-far-out flavors that some associate with any kind of alternative eating, be it ethnic or ethical, making it an excellent starter book for those looking to try a strict vegetarian diet who don't want to be overwhelmed by the exoticism and aggressive politics of even some of the best vegan books.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ani DiFranco: Folk Superstar! (Now more than ever), December 13, 1999
This review is from: To The Teeth (Audio CD)
Abandoning her folk roots? Hardly. If we think of folk music merely in terms of it's "traditional" style, then we negate exactly what it is that folk music sets out to do. Folk music gives a voice to the life experiences of people often marginalized by the status quo. In keeping with that tradition, Ani not only has done so here but is crossing the dividing borders, combining folk with other not-pop, not-mainstream, styles: Jazz, Funk, Rap...don't let the list end there Ani. Everyone else, GO BUY THIS ALBUM!
