"Florentine and Pig are the Mary Poppins of cooking. What better way to get children interested in what they eat than to make a game out of it." Dawn O'Porter

Rollercoaster Mum




"We love Florentine and Pig. A beautiful story with stunning illustrations to match. It is rare to find a great book that offers a child something magical with each story."

Loved by Parents


"Mikhail's characters have endearingly wide eyes and oodles of energy, and Katzler's text is as satisfying as an expertly executed soufflé.."



"The text is choc-full of superlatives and exclamations, a kind of verbal version of the rainbow sprinkles which decorate Pig’s cookies.  It will enhance children's vocabulary and encourage them to use more descriptive language of their own."

Armadillo Children's Book Magazine


"This book combines two things most children love: a good story and home cooking. A lovely way to introduce children to cooking."

We Love This Book


"Fantastic illustration, beautifully crafted pages, lovingly written words and important messages..."

Maida Vale Mums


"This is just a brilliant book; The rcipes and crafts bring the story alive for the kids and sparks imagination."

Being a Mummy


"It's impossible not to love the duo, whose number one concern is taking a big hamper of food to eat on the island, which includes 'X marks the spot' Sparkle Cookies and 'Oooo Arrrr' Pirate Pasta. Your little ones will be longing for rainy days, so they can have just as much fun."

Worcester News


"There needs to be more of this sort of book!"
