Description

The perfect novel for young readers who love baking and magic! Rosemary Bliss's family has a secret. It's the Bliss Cookery Booke--an ancient, leather-bound volume of enchanted recipes like Singing Gingersnaps. Rose and her siblings are supposed to keep the Cookery Booke locked away while their parents are out of town, but then a mysterious stranger shows up. "Aunt" Lily rides a motorcycle and also whips up exotic (but delicious) dishes for dinner. Soon boring, non-magical recipes feel like life before Aunt Lily--a lot less fun. So Rose and her siblings experiment with just a couple of recipes from the forbidden Cookery Booke. A few Love Muffins and Cookies of Truth couldn't cause too much trouble . . . could they? Kathryn Littlewood's culinary caper blends rich emotional flavor with truly enchanting wit, yielding one heaping portion of hilarious family adventure.show more

Our customer reviews

I kind of loved this book. It was so cute! Rose is 11 years old and her family runs a magical bakery. Mostly it's a normal bakery but her parents know how to make magic, and sometimes they bake magical cookies or muffins that help people. Rose really wants to magic-bake, but her parents only let her run errands for the bakery. That is, until her parents leave her and her brothers for a few days, and her beautiful and mysterious Aunt Lily arrives to help them. Rose has some doubts about Aunt Lily but she has never felt so good before. She feels beautiful, her brothers appreciate her, even her crush notices her. And she's finally able to bake with magic! everything seems easy except that it isn't, not when the town eat some truth cookies, backward cake and more! I really liked Rose and the dynamic of the family. She was young and insecure, only 11 years old, but she's also great and loves her family. For me it was so obvious 'Aunt Lily' was bad, but of course these were only children who easily fell in love with her. Overall, I really enjoyed it and I want to share this book with my 8 years old niece. It's a cute story, but be warned, it has a sequel!show more
