Description

Meet Florentine and Pig and get ready to explore a world of friendship, play, and food. Florentine is a little girl who loves keeping busy making crafts, inventing games, and coming up with delicious snacks. So when she and Pig plan a picnic, it’s bound to be fun—unless, of course, one very special ingredient is stuck at the top of a tree…

Each book in this exciting new picture book series will feature recipes, a craft, or an activity, encouraging families to read, play, learn, and create together.




About the Author

EVA KATZLER became aware that kids had forgotten-or had never known-the simple joys of getting a little messy with their hands when she worked in a summer camp. She came up with Florentine and Pig as a way of encouraging children (and their grownups) to rediscover the happiness that comes of cooking, eating, and making things together.JESS MIKHAIL's designs are created on her colorful sofa in her studio, which is located in an old custard factory in Birmingham. www.jess.mikhail.com
