Vintage Cookbook for kids, A very slightly messy manual for the kid in everyone! By the Editors of Klutz Press, circa 1987. Filled with safe cooking tips, lots of colorful illustrations, and humor. I love how the book lays flat when opened to any page.

This spiral bound book is in relatively good shape, you can see some of the bendy marks on the cover in the first photo, there are a few small stains that didn't come off when I wiped the back cover, a few of the pages at the very edge have a little crinkle to them, but no bad odors or tears.

The 77 fun pages contain timeless kid favorites like:

Tossed Green Salad with Sara's Own Dressing
Hidden Hot Dogs
Homemade Applesauce
Disgustingly Rich Brownies
Frozen Bananoids

Also included are recipes for homemade play dough, face paint, finger paints and Fido's Fabulous People Crackers.

The People Crackers would be a great gift idea for anyone with a dog.

Illustrations by Jim M'Guinness ~ They are so cute!

I will combine shipping, and am willing to ship to other countries, there are too many variables to list all the shipping combinations; If interested in multiple purchases and/or shipping to other countries, I will be happy to weigh stuff and let you know how much it will cost.
