Halloween is supposed to be fun. Spooky, yes, but also fun. Dressing up in weird costumes and eating all kinds of goodies. How about making some delectable treats and throwing a very haunting Halloween party? All you need is a little creativity, a sense of the bizarre, and a good collection of stories to go along with each treat. How about some Bat Bits which are “simply enchanted biscuits” that “will do a little flapping on the serving platter”? Or, what about some of the Pumpkin Witch’s favorite Pumpkin Patch Cupcakes, a treat that tends “to put a spell on all who consume them, making them crave more”? The list of possibilities is endless where the imagination casts its own spells.
Russell J. Dorn has created Kitchen Witch just for this purpose. Not only does he present imaginative and very spooky food, but he provides a name that is spooky, a spooky character to whom the credit applies, a story behind the spooky food (told from the spooky character’s point of view), and an historical background to this particular food creation. Then comes the recipe, complete with unusual, but certainly not un-tasty, ingredients, clear instructions and, best yet, photographs to outline the process from the ingredients to the finished product. The photographs and illustrations are the art of David Vincent Dorn (well done and very spookily presented). This is a fun book leading to a fun project for the whole family, not just the kids. Kitchen Witch: Halloween Recipes For Kids is definitely a book for the Halloween fanatic and the kid hidden within us all. A real treat of a book and fun to read, too.
