Susanna Reich Publishes 'Minette's Feast' Picture Book
August 03, 2012
Abrams Books for Young Readers has released a picture book called Minette's Feast: The Delicious Story of Julia Child and Her Cat by Susanna Reich with illustrations by Amy Bates. This title commemorates Julia Child's 100th birthday which falls on August 15, 2012.
Author Susan Reich talked about the inspiration behind this picture book: "As a lifelong Julia Child fan and cat person, I was thrilled to discover that Julia was a cat lover, too. I’d wanted to write about her for years, and when I read her memoir, My Life in France, I found so many irresistible anecdotes about Minette. Suddenly this iconic television chef and genius cookbook author became much more accessible, and I knew I’d found a fun way to tell the story."
