The Louisa May Alcott Cookbook

Gretchen Anderson, Author Little Brown and Company $12.95 (81p) ISBN 978-0-316-03951-2
Anderson collects recipes from the stories of her favorite author and arranges them according to degrees of difficulty. The directions for oldtime favorites are clear, neatly illustrated by Milone, who also evokes the cheery households in Alcott's Little Women and Little Men with animated drawings. The author's forewords contain notes on Alcott's turbulent life, but they're too sketchy to add particular interest. Young readers will, however, certainly enjoy preparing and eating the specialties of the March and Baer kitchens: apple pie, Boston brown bread, muffins, pattycakes, strawberry pie and other tempters.
