How the Cookie Crumbled: The True (and Not-So-True) Stories of the Invention of the Chocolate Chip Cookie

Amazon.com Rating:

Crunch! Crunch! Crunch! Mmmmm! Everyone loves chocolate chip cookies! But not everyone knows where they came from. Meet Ruth Wakefield, the talented chef and entrepreneur who started a restaurant, wrote a cookbook, and invented this delicious dessert. But just how did she do it, you ask? That's where things get messy! So sit back and grab a cookie to read a story — or three — about how this round, crispy, chocolatey piece of perfection came to be.

In this unique and clever picture book, Gilbert Ford sheds a little light on everyone's favorite sweet treat — the chocolate chip cookie — and reminds readers everywhere that just because a story is told doesn't mean it's true.

Description

"Using traditional and digital media, Ford paints a cheery vision of Depression-era America, highlighting Wakefield’s persistence and exacting nature (“Ruth’s staff said she was one tough cookie to work for”). He also taps into the visual language of vintage comics to present three ways Wakefield’s discovery might have come about: as an accident, substitution, or moment of inspiration. Ford casts his vote for the third option; readers will cast theirs for baking cookies from the recipe that’s included." — Publishers Weekly
