PRAISE FOR Julia, Child:
"Julia, Child is not only a book about the joy of cooking, but the wonder of childhood, and, like the best cooking, is meant to be savored.... I guarantee it'll leave you hungry." --The National Post
"Maclear works in a genre that I believe she has invented: the fictional childhood anecdote of a famous person." --Quill & Quire
"... a lighthearted ... allegory about inspiration and its gifts. Intriguing for an adult familiar with the real Julia and perhaps for the perceptive child who will understand that it's not about how old you are, or about what you cook, but about what you bring to the table." --Kirkus Reviews
"If the combination of Canadian gems Julie Morstad and Kyo Maclear doesn't fill your heart with joy I don't know what will." --Vikki VanSickle, author of If I Had a Gryphon
"Toronto-based author Kyo Maclear presents a story that celebrates the joy of eating, the art of having a good time and the importance of never fully growing up." --West of the City
"A playful, scrumptious celebration of the joy of eating, the importance of never completely growing up and mastering the art of having a good time [...] a story that should be taken with a grain of salt and a generous pat of butter." --49th Shelf (blog)
