KIRKUS REVIEW

Told in freely flowing couplets, this is the amusing story of a marvelous cook, obsessed with stingyness. An unhappy combination because all her excellence only acts to tantalize her neighbors' appetites without ever satisfying them. And then, one day, an enterprising beggar comes to town and cures the woman of her vice. Humor, imagination and originality distinguish both the text and pictures of this book by the author of The Duchess Bakes a Cake, who fully understands that delicious tastes and laughter both play an important part in the minds of her readers.
