mud pies and other recipes

Mud Pies and Other Recipes, by Marjorie Winslow and illustrated by Erik Blegvad, is one of my favorite books from my childhood. It encapsulates so much of what I love! Children's books and charming illustrations and children's imaginations; it's a fictional, self-contained artifact, almost like the Voynich Manuscript; and it's in the format of a recipe book (and I mean, I love cooking, I love recipes, and I used a similar format for my book of spells project).
