About the Author

Katharine Kenah's Family Favorite is her grandmother's grandmother's brownies. The recipe for these delicious, fudgy-rich treats has been passed down for generations. Besides these delightful easy readers about Room 75, Katharine has written The Dream Shop, Eggs Over Easy, and many exciting nonfiction books for children. She lives with her family in Granville, Ohio. Abby Carter loves to bake--especially blueberry pie, her Family Favorite. When she's not making a racket in the kitchen, she stays busy illustrating many beautiful picture books and early readers. Abby lives with her family in Connecticut.


K-Gr 2-This easy reader is more predictable and contrived than this team's The Best Seat in Second Grade (HarperCollins, 2005). Ollie yearns to be the best at something. When assigned to cook his family's favorite dish to surprise a television chef visiting his classroom, he sees a chance to excel. But unfortunately, he cannot find a dish that everyone agrees upon. Finally, he asks his family to name their favorite foods, and he creates a colorful macaroni-and-cheese dish that wins the chef's praise. One has to wonder why he didn't ask his family in the first place and avoid all the frustration. Also, Ollie's parents don't supervise his use of a hot oven, which seems ill-advised. Carter's pleasing watercolor illustrations are the highlight here, especially the scenes of Ollie's warm, African-American family. Fans of the previous books may enjoy visiting with Mr. Hopper and his students, but, for most, this title is an additional purchase.-Barbara Katz, Parish Episcopal School, Dallas, TX Copyright 2007 Reed Business Information.
