Do you like to cook? We do, too. We even have our own cooking show, even though one of us really isn’t old enough to be on the show.
But Mom said we had to share.
Anyway, we hope you like our show!

Praise for Cooking with Henry and Elliebelly

“When a boy’s pretend play as a TV chef collides with a very stubborn little sister (the eponymous Elliebelly, aka Eleanor), it brings new and very funny meaning to the concept of reality television. . . . [Yaccarino] and Parkhurst, making her children’s book debut, invigorate the my-sibling-is-driving-me-crazy genre with fresh, laugh-out-loud comedy, while creating a straight man who’s admirable for his nimbleness at shifting gears, accommodating unforeseen problems, and maintaining relative equanimity—important traits for a would-be chef.” — Publishers Weekly, STARRED Review

“The appealing cartoon-style illustrations in a bold color palate show Henry and Elliebelly against a white backdrop, so that they, and the few attractive accoutrements that clutter their workspace, really pop out.” — Booklist

“As can be expected, Yaccarino has created characters and an environment that grabs readers’ attention and won’t let go. His interpretation of Elliebelly, with her wild curls, peek-a-boo bellybutton, and ever-present pink butterfly wings, is especially perfect. Parkhurst’s carefully chosen dialogue and Yaccarino’s deceptively simple art create a delicious delicacy.” — School Library Journal

“Resplendently warm and lively with a retro feel.” — Kirkus Reviews
