For fun
Mouse Soup by Arnold Lobel - If you have yet to read Mouse Soup, you must. I do not care how old you are, you must read it right now. In this hilarious story for early readers, a cunning mouse convinces his would-be captor and consumer that mouse soup won't taste good without stories in it (hello, Scheherazade!), so he proceeds to tell silly story after silly story until . . . well, let's just say Bugs Bunny would be proud!

Trivia: Do you remember the Sisters series by Jennifer Cole? I do. It came out in 1980s. Book #9 was entitled Too Many Cooks.

I almost called this booklist Cooking the Books.
