I got this charming softcover at the Lucky Dog thrift shop. It opens with a tiny problem: the girl who wants to make an apple pie finds that the market is closed. Not to worry - just go traveling around the world, collecting ingredients from the source! The story highlights the many ingredients we rely on for simple dishes, and has some fun things to show about the different locales. I like the author's whimsy, too: "Get to Sri Lanka any way you can," says the text, while the picture shows our heroine on a raft. "You can't miss it," says the author helpfully. Also helpful: when gathering the bark of the kurunduru tree to make some cinnamon, beware of napping leopards!

I enjoyed this one very much, and would have loved it as a kid, too. Great read-out-loud possibilities here - and even a recipe for apple pie...
