Enchanted Thyme – Book one in the Delicious Adventure Series.
Every night at bedtime, 10 year old Belinda Phair and her younger brother Peter choose a story for their father, Chef Michael, to read them. One night they discover a new volume on their shelf, a book that neither remembers seeing before, a book that seems to have magically appeared, a book of endless stories, adventures and recipes. The book is “ENCHANTED THYME.”
That night, as Peter and Belinda drift off to sleep, they’re visited by three winged kitchen mice named Marjoram, Basil and Rosemary who whisk them off to the land of Enchanted Thyme. There they discover a mystical forest heavy under the dark spell of the Fricassee Fairy. The Fairy’s powerful curse of eternal hunger has stricken the land’s Queen Topstead. Everyone in the kingdom is topsy-turvy trying to find a meal that will satisfy the Queen’s longing and appetite. Peter and Belinda are chosen to help the royal kitchen’s master chef find just the right secret ingredient for a dish that will satisfy the royal appetite and restore order.
Will they ever be able to break the Fricassee Fairy’s curse once and for all?
Well … fairy tales can sometimes come true.
What a fun book to read! Not only did Benjamin have fun reading this one, but so did I. Since he was laughing and enjoying it so much, the girls (Abigail and Victoria) wanted me to read it to them.
They loved listening to the story.
It is such a delightful adventure. At the end of each of the chapters, there is a recipe that you can try with the kids. Some of them were a little advanced, but most of them were easily done with the kids.
They loved the fact that they got to try things that related directly to the stories.
This is going to be a series. I can’t wait for more to come out. It had a nice interactive feel since we could read a chapter and then stop to try out the recipe. The kids felt like they were along on the adventure as well.
