Jurassic Snacks With Astrid And Max, A Recipe Book For Boys And Girls - Sam Bartlett:
My aim was to try and engage children with cooking in a new way, through ‘narrative recipe’. Recipe books aimed at children are all written in the same methodical approach as those books aimed at adults, they might have a few more exciting characters, brighter colours and easier recipes, but these seem to be the only discernable differences.
My books tell the story of Astrid and Max, two dinosaurs with a passion for cooking; each 8-step guide is easy for children to follow, and sees them create a healthy snack/drink.
In every paperback collectable book there are pink preparation pages (for parents to see the ingredients and method needed) and white colouring in and activity pages at the back for children (for something to do whilst waiting for things to cook).
