Julia Child was a larger than life figure who was loved for her cooking, as much as her personality. Jessie Hartland’s brilliant tribute to Julia Child is a treat for all ages. Hartland takes us through Julia’s life, her travels and experiences. The pages are filled with colour and detail as if Hartland were trying to compress all that she has to say in the picture book format. The book will keep the reader busy and interested throughout. A great book to gift aspiring chefs or learn about inimitable Julia who learnt new things all the time and was not afraid about failing.
