Library Journal Review


Amazing but not for kids submitted by lballard on August 8, 2018, 6:10am This is an absolutely beautiful group of stories, but fair warning, one of the storylines contains sex scenes. Like the rest, it’s centered around a love of food, and really interesting and well done, but if you want to show this to younger kids, you might want to have the skip button handy for the mobster and moll scenes.
