A 2021 libro del mes, this beautifully illustrated book is a playful celebration of the joy of eating, loosely inspired by the real (and iconic!) Julia Child. It tells the story of a girl named Julia, who falls in love with French food at a young age. She and her friend Simca agree on two things: you can never use too much butter, and it’s more fun to be a child than an adult.

"Illustrated throughout by the phenomenally talented Canadian artist, Julie Morstad, Julia, Child is a delectable feast for the eyes." [Pop Goes the Reader]
"Intriguing for an adult familiar with the real Julia and perhaps for the perceptive child who will understand that it’s not about how old you are, or about what you cook, but about what you bring to the table." [Kirkus]
