kuwis kitchenKuwi’s Kitchen. The Kiwi kids cookbook by Kat Merewether. Pub. Illustrated Publishing, 2018.

The first thing I noticed as I flicked through this beautifully presented book on cooking for kiwi Kids, was how delicious the food looked. Kids will be licking the pages.

Using the characters from the Kuwi picture books which have been reviewed elsewhere on this blog, delicious and healthy food for breakfast, lunch and dinner plus sweets is shown. How to cook it and display it on a plate and taking into account allergies like nut and dairy free, plus gluten free options.

Emphasis is on fun, with lots of food with eyes. The preparations by Kam Chadderton and Kyle Mereweather are beautifully photographed by Jayde Krippner and Kat’s text is instructive and simple to follow.

This will be very useful and popular in the home and at school and encourage picky eaters to be more adventurous in their choice of food. It comes with a Kuwi Bikkie Cutter for those biscuits and putting a kiwi pattern on food.

99 Flavours of Suck by Tania Hutley

August 6, 2012 Comments off

99 Flavours of Suck by Tania Hutley. Pub. Scholastic, 2012.

This is one crazy story. Kane is 15 years old, he has a best mate called Jase, a girl friend Pippa who makes him sweat with desire, a mother who is a TV celebrity as a dog whisperer and he is allergic to dogs.

Kane likes to make girls laugh but he can’t get a girlfriend to lock lips with. He fancies Pippa but she seems more keen on his mate Jase.

While on a shoot with his mother he is licked on the hand by a hairy man and bitten on the bum by a dog while relieving himself in a creek. After an embarrassing appearance on his mother’s tv show he declines into absurd behaviour.

Kane feels he is turning into a werewolf. ThenĀ  the gorgeous Angela turns up.

A good laugh for teens who have a sense of the ridiculous.
