Emma Buttersnap is throwing a special tea party, and there's so much to do before the guests arrive. From creating the invitations and the menu to buying and preparing the finger foods and tea, Emma hasn't a minute to spare.

Young children love to play tea party, and now Emma Buttersnap can show them how to plan the perfect affair. This interactive book introduces children to the origins of tea, one of the world's favorite beverages. The text combines interesting facts (in the eighteenth century, ladies used to carry their own teacups to parties in special cases) with historical anecdotes (the Earl of Sandwich invented the sandwich to keep his fingers from getting greasy when playing cards). Craft projects and delicious recipes, which children can try with the help of an adult, are also included. Add Linda Bronson's gorgeously detailed illustrations and you get the perfect book for teatime--or any time!

About the Author:

Lindsey Tate is the author of Claire and the Friendly Snakes, illustrated by Jonathan Franklin. Originally from England, Ms. Tate now lives in New York City with her family.

Linda Bronson received critical acclaim for her illustrations in Crookjaw, by Caron Lee Cohen (Holt). A graduate of the Rhode Island School of Design, Ms. Bronson lives in Connecticut.

From Kirkus Reviews:

There are many manuals on tea and tea parties, but Tate steps out of the lacy tablecloth variety to serve up a tea party within a story, told by the plucky young Emma Buttersnap. The excuse is a visit to her Aunt Pru in England, the precept, to learn about the history and origins of tea and tea-drinking as well as to present crafts, recipes, and hints for making the perfect cuppa. Instructions for making invitations, creating menus, and choosing teapots are outlined in Emma's conversational narration; Bronson shows her as a perky doll of a girl in her round-buttoned pink dress and rebellious braids. Predominant purples and pinks will appeal to the tea party set, as will the antics of casting tea overboard in imitation of the Boston Tea Party, or the sight of tea poured out from a pot atop Emma's head into cups atop the heads of her cats. The book can be read la carte, with individual sections on preparing finger sandwiches and setting the table, or full service, where children can cozy up to Emma's story about her aunt's birthday, complete with a tea party fit for a queen.
