  1. My kids LOVED edible books this year — I think this is the first time that my 3 year old really “got it” — by far the one they kept talking about later was “Cows in the Corn.” A quite literal interpretation seemed to appeal to them best — even though their own entry “Swimmy” was more of a translation of the image from a picture book into really big cakes. THANK YOU for a fabulous event and a fun family-friendly Friday evening at the library!

  2. I’m glad you enjoyed it! It’s a lot of fun for the staff involved with it too.
    It’s never too early to start thinking about next year…
