Although this book is definitely different from what I usually review, I really enjoyed reading these recipes, and they all seemed really delicious! All the recipes in this book have cute “mer-mish” names and are very simple with few and inexpensive ingredients needed. Even though this book is aimed at children, I really believe adults will also enjoy the fun drinks, small bites and desserts in this book. Although the back of the book says this book is mostly aimed for sleepovers, birthday parties and etc. I think adults can use these recipes for BBQs, days at the beach or boat, or just for simple backyard fun. I really recommend picking this up from your local library or book store if you are having a party soon, since all, and I mean all, of these recipes are perfect, light and fresh for the summer. I give this book (*****) 5 stars.
