Darth Vader is not afraid of anything . . . well maybe one thing. This book is perfect. It won't need my help to sell, but I still want to make sure every single Star Wars fan knows about this book because Adam Rex has written the best Star Wars book ever written. It's for kid and adult fans alike. Buy a copy for you, for your dad, for your kid's Star Wars-obsessed Grandma, probably also one for your kid. Enjoy. -Heather

“One day, Julia and Simca had an idea of how to fix things for themselves and the grown-ups they knew. They would makes recipes for growing young.” This charmingly told and illustrated tale of two young girls who love to cook together is neither the life of a famous chef nor a cookbook, yet feeds us with its flavors of friendship, fancy, fun, and the importance of slowing down to share a meal and the company of our fellows. Do you remember how fun it is to be a child pretending to prepare a feast to feed some special grown-ups? This sweet story seems to me to capture that powerfully nourishing feeling. -Claudia
