"Julia Child’s imposing but unglamorous figure and rumbly voiced television presence charmed cooks and eaters alike, even as her cookbooks changed kitchen dynamics in many American households. Hartland uses a naive cartoon storytelling style — several scenes on a page, accompanied by an energetic handwritten, partly cursive text — to recount her journey to success as a renowned cook. Lively tableaux deliver an affectionate tribute to this strong-minded woman." — Kirkus Reviews
