Your Favorite Book from Childhood Is Now a Cookbook (4 stars)

If you grew up reading the marvelous Anne of Green Gables series chances are you're going to adore this cookbook. Peppered with story quotes, charming illustrations, and beautiful photographs this is a cookbook that would make a lovely gift for a fan. I rarely use but have a wide collection of fandom and pop culture-centric cookbooks so I can't vouch for whether the recipes are actually practical or delicious. My guess is that if the author paid as much close attention to the recipes as she did the little details they're probably great.

Whether you pick it up as a gift for a lover of all things Avonlea or for your own shelf it's a beautiful book.
