I loved this book for its combined fact and fantasy. Yes, you could get an egg from France, however you probably wouldn't bring it along on your world travels so that you could have a fresh egg. Now imagine the milk. Yes, you can get cinnamon in Sri Lanka, but an elephant probably wouldn't hoist you above the leopard sleeping at the base of the kurundu tree so you could get the tree's bark. The book contains a pie recipe and guidelines for an apple-tasting party.
Publishers Weekly, 1996-10-21 Singling out the "offbeat nostalgia" of the "energetic" watercolors in this tale of a round-the-world grocery trip, PW called Priceman "a master of whimsy." Ages 4-8. (Oct.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved
Publishers Weekly, 1994-04-11 A yen to bake sends a girl on a worldwide shopping spree to gather ingredients for that favorite all-American treat, apple pie. Priceman ( The Tiny, Tiny Boy and the Big, Big Cow ) is a master of whimsy (the chicken chosen to lay the eggs, for example, falls to earth in a parachute). Energetic watercolors radiate an offbeat nostalgia; although they're not moored in any particular period, they contain an appealing jumble of details, from Edwardian (an antique pram; turn-of-the-century millinery) through the present day (a yellow school bus). Priceman addresses her audience directly, an astute device that draws readers in and lets them accompany the pinafore-clad, Madeleine-esque cook on her travels, from the Italian countryside (she's there for the semolina wheat) to Sri Lanka (for cinnamon, from the bark of the kurundu tree) to Jamaica (for the sugar cane) and home via Vermont (the apples, of course). At last, the pie is baked and feasted upon by the girl and all the friends she has made on her travels. For those inevitably salivating by the final page, a recipe is included. Ages 4-8.
