"Here is a cookbook for all readers of the Pooh stories, with recipes which Winnie himself would have appreciated. The instructions, carefully planned by Katie Stewart, are quick and simple and should give hours of fun in the kitchen.
The recipes include ideas for the young child who can make Cinnamon Toast for himself as well as for the slightly more experienced cook who can twist his own bread rolls. Honey, of course, (though not so much Haycorns) is a favourite ingredient, and there are original suggestions for Smackerels, Provisions for Picnics and Expotitions, more sustaining lunches and suppers, and party specialities.
Each recipe is complemented by a quotation from one of A. A. Milne's stories and illustrated by Ernest Shepard. So, if the cakes are in the oven and the table is laid, what could be better than a line or two from Pooh?"
