Recommended Reading: Grandpa Wollemi’s Birthday

vegan story book

Here’s another big colourful story book from Edward Benn (of Wibbolywub fame), this time beautifully illustrated by Cynthia Barnett:  Grandpa Wollemi’s Birthday.

It’s a happy, friendly story about children getting ready for their Grandpa’s birthday.

Kauri and Myrtle have made presents for Grandpa but Cedro, who can’t get the hang of sewing or making things with paper, doesn’t know what to give him.

That is, until he remembers that Grandpa is no stranger to the cookie jar and would probably really like a birthday cake.

So he makes him one.

And the story explains how he does it, incorporating the simple, egg-free vegan recipe naturally.  The colourful, naïve illustrations make this book charming.

It is clearly designed to be read to young children, a lovely bedtime (or daytime) story but is, in addition, a vegan birthday cake recipe book which will enable little ones (with adult supervision of course) to make a delicious cake of their own with ordinary ingredients likely to be found in everyone’s kitchens.

Another lovely idea from Honestly Books.
