Cookbooks inspired by classic children’s books are not a new thing. From Roald Dahl to Dr Seuss, there have been many. I am surprised that they did not turn Robert McClosky’s other book Homer Price into a cookbook yet. Homer Price’s central theme is doughnuts. Know any other Homer who likes doughnuts? Robert McCloskey’s Blueberries for Sal is a sure winner with classic blueberry recipes. This book is a no-brainer for the family. Blueberries are healthy.

Robert McCloskey (1914-2003) wrote and illustrated some of the most honored and enduring children’s books ever published. He grew up in Hamilton, Ohio, and spent time in Boston, New York, and ultimately Maine, where he and his wife raised their two daughters. The first two-time Caldecott Medal winner, for Make Way for Ducklings and Time of Wonder, McCloskey was also awarded Caldecott Honors for Blueberries for Sal, One Morning in Maine, and Journey Cake, Ho! by Ruth Sawyer. He was declared a Living Legend by the Library of Congress in 2000. You can see some of his best-loved characters immortalized as statues in Boston’s Public Garden and Lentil Park in Hamilton, Ohio.
