EZPZ 2 : Easy Peasy Very Cheesy product reviews

The Easy Peasy cartoon cooking team are back! Join Rooky Cook the skateboarder, his dog called Hot Dog, crazy chef Gordon Bleu and the Jo Seager character as they show readers how to whip up easy and fun recipes like Tex Mex Tuna Tacos, Easy Salad That Kids Really Like and Rocky Road Icecream.

Easy Peasy Very Cheesy is the second collection of the popular EZPZ COOK cartoon recipes developed by Jo Seagar and illustrated by John Stringer (Easy Peasy Lemon Squeezy was released in November 2001).

Aimed at chefs aged 8 - 14, these cartoon recipes instantly appeal to this independent age group. The tone is light-hearted and relaxed and the recipes are easy enough to be attempted alone while at the same time still providing challenges.

Easy Peasy Very Cheesy has a glossary of cooking terms, sections on safety, cleanliness and measuring, as well as a handy extra cooking tip on each page.

My children and I found this one awesome, and we are glad to have purchased it.
The recipes are simple and easy to follow, just right for my boys age groups, and of course because they love cheese, its a hit anyway.
As an adult I quite like the simplicity of the book and the fact the recipes are also simple and do not require much hard work or time, especially in today's society when time is so precious.
The pictures are also lovely.
A very simple, easy to follow, lovely book that should appeal to most.

Now, this is a quandary. My son is younger than the target age group, and I'm a little (well ok, a lot) older than the age group that this book is aimed at... so the simple recipes are a bit too basic to appeal to me, but still too advanced for my son.

None the less, we still had a blast exploring the various options the book supplies. I was actually really impressed, despite the cartoons being a little distracting and hard to read at a glance.

The page layout is great for kids, who love bright colours and impressions of movement, and the extra tips and hints at the bottom of every page are, on the whole, quite useful. There are a few pointless ones, but that may be my kitchen experience talking. The recipes were all around 2-6 steps each, and fit on a single page, making it easy to photocopy off so that you can keep the book itself clean and safely tucked away from grubby fingers.

The inclusion of a clear, kids-speak glossary to define the terms used was a great idea, and added a wonderful way to explain measurements, etc.

Overall, quite a stunning book! I think actual photos of the finished articles might have been a smart addition, giving the kids a clear idea of the finished article to aim for, but kids wouldn't think like that I guess.

My personal favourites: the Big Breakfast Pancakes, and accompanied by the Lemon Panckae Syrup. (drool)

Product reviews for listing 7541: The Cat Wants Cuddles -  Author: P. Crumble and Lucinda Gifford

Product image for The Cat Wants CuddlesKevin doesn't want a pat. He doesn't want a tickle. And he definitely does NOT want a cuddle.

There's absolutely no way this hilarious cat is going to change his mind about that.

Or will he?

A delightful story for pre-schoolers which older children will enjoy as well!
