"If there's any greater happiness than smelling a small child gently simmering in the pot then I'm sure I don't know what it is," says Esmelia Sniff in her foreword, before introducing Janie Groviller and her Kate and Sidney pie. Sixteen other recipes follow, with ingredients and methods accompanied by each witchy cook's musings on her favourite way to serve up girls and boys. Colin Stimpson's bright, detailed illustrations and spoof ads ("Nanny's Tea Shoppe. Children Always Welcome") add to the fun.
