Mud Book: How to Make Pies and Cakes
Title: Mud Book: How to Make Pies and Cakes

ISBN: 9781616895525

From the Publisher:

In the mid-1950s, legendary avant-garde composer John Cage and artist Lois Long created a truly marvelous object. Part artist's book, part cookbook, and part children's book, Mud Book is a spirited, if not satirical, take on almost every child's first attempt at cooking and making. Through the humble mud pie add dirt and water! Cage and Long encourage children to explore their imagination and to get their hands dirty, and they offer this warning: Mud pies are to make and look at, not to eat. A unique hybrid of art book, unconventional cookbook, and inspiration for young makers, this new edition of Mud Book will delight children and parents alike, and makes a charming gift for all ages.

Review Quotes:
"This picture book by a world-class musician and a textile artist will find as eager an audience now as it did in the 1980s-though happily, a much larger one as well. Multigenerational mess makers will delight in this little book and the messes it encourages." - Kirkus Starred Review
