AMERICAN BOOKSELLERS ASSOCIATION RATES HERB TOPS
Each year the ABA (The American Booksellers
Association, which is a respected group of independent booksellers) picks
out what they feel are the best books of the season and prints the list
in their weekly publication, "Bookselling This Week." Cooking With Herb,
TheVegetarian Dragon - A Cookbook For Kids (we're pleased to announce,)
was right near the top of their list of the best picture books for children.
Barefoot Books, Herb, Jules Bass and Debbie Harter are all very proud of
Veggie Dragon Herb makes it easy for kids to cook. As the author and recipe writer of Cooking With Herb (actually Herb dictated everything to me since he can't type with those big dragon-paws of his), the first thing I would like to say is that you donít have to be a vegetarian to have fun cooking with Herb, The Vegetarian Dragon. With a little help from his friends Rosie-Rose, Gorse and his beloved Grand-Ma-Ma-Flora, Herb demonstrates that vegetarian food can be just as delicious as meat-based dishes.
'Cooking With Herb' BOOK
Here's one to wet your appetite:
Ever had a Strawberry Slurp?
What will it take to pull a really big turnip out of the ground? You'll never find out unless you read BAREFOOT BOOKS' newest title: The Gigantic Turnip, written by Aleksei Tolstoy and illustrated by Niamh Sharkey (hardback, 40 pages, ISBN 1 902283 11 2) A great beginner's book for ages 2-6. It's a classic folk tale that's been loved by generations of children. In this version, the old man who plants the turnip has to call on his wife, cows, pigs, chickens, cats, canaries and finally on one small mouse. You'll love it!

REVIEWS FOR HERB COMING IN...
The London Times put Herb, The Vegetarian Dragon on its January list of best books for children, saying: "The year got off to a splatting, stomping roaring start...(Herb is)...a tale of battle, burning, espionage, and involves a threatened beheading by a black-hooded executioner with an axe. But, all ends well...a happy book." Wow, Herb makes the London Times list!!! You have to be impressed with THAT! Herb almost fainted! Had to mix up a quick carrot juice to revive him!
