Gr 4-8—Inspired by the "Harry Potter" movies, food writer Farrow (Doctor Who: The Official Cookbook) has created a baking book with recipes as beautiful as they are delicious. Divided into savory and sweet sections, these advanced recipes are perfect for kids who are serious about cooking. Yeast breads, pastries, cakes, and cookies are transformed into Mandrake Bread, Sorting Hat Cupcakes, Wand Breadsticks, and more. Color photos of these creations adorn each page along with stills from the movies, elevating this baking book's shelf appeal. Also throughout the book are colorful text boxes with "Top Tips" that provide extra help for young chefs and "Magical Facts" that supply movie trivia. The unique angle of Harry Potter-themed foods will make this book a hit with Potter fans and themed party planners. VERDICT A highly recommended baking book for Harry Potter fans and serious young chefs.—Kate Rao, Alhambra Civic Center Lib., Alhambra, CACopyright 2021 School Library Journal, LLC Used with permission.
