When Martin Howard first pitched to me the idea for ‘How to Cook Children’ I was a little nervous about the subject matter, I then read the first chapter and I laughed out loud. I passed it to my son, who was twelve at the time and he quite literally rolled around the floor laughing!

Since publication it has received some rave reviews; the Guardian newspaper reviewed it as their picture book of the week, Dave Myers of the ‘Hairy Bikers’ TV program gave it a wonderful write up and so did the unshockable Gordon Ramsay. 

It’s a quirky book that I thoroughly enjoyed working on and the text still makes me laugh whenever I pick it up.
