About this Item

Front hinge barely started. Offsetting to rear endpapers. 175 pp. Sage green with large paste-on by Margaret G. Hays, to front board. Spotting to rear board. This book tells the story of Mary Frances, a little girl whose great ambition was to help her mother." Some very wise people would call this a story book, some a manual training book, and others a cookery book, but Mary Frances knew better; she knew that it is a Book within a Book that introduced her to Aunty Rolling Pin and a lot of other dear, dear friends, such as no little girl ever had before, and whom she now wishes to introduce for the first time to all other little girls."Twenty-six chapters, and forty recipes. Countless little drawings of the "Kitchen People" (TeaKettle, SaucePan, BoilerPan, BigIronPot, PiePlate & Teapot, CoffeePot; MantelClock & Blue Pitcher, AuntieRollingPin, etc.) in the margins, many of these objects, thought to be inanimate having their say about the contents of nearby text. Also stories, poems, songs, jokes and even affirmations. . Fabulous glossy frontis-- . Created by Jane Allen Boyer, it shows a young girl of maybe 12, complete with mother's too-large apron nearly trailing onto the floor, concentrating, and bent over a wood cookstove.
