That's Not All I Found in the City, by Sue Buchanan and Lynn Hodges

Ashton dreams about the wonderful things she'll show her
friend Debbie on their Easter trip to New York City — like carriage rides and shopping sprees and art museums! But Ashton is in for a big surprise when she discovers just how much Debbie already knows about the big city — and the real reason for Easter!


So there we were this afternoon in the gift shop of the National Cathedral in Washington DC, when Bradley called out, "Dad, come here - I found Aunt Sue's books!"  He thought it was so cool.  Actually I thought it was cool too... I mean, how many people can say that their
Aunt's book is sold in the same place where Presidents and Supreme
Court Justices worship!

By Ann Byle

Authors Sue Buchanan and Dana Shafer put the glorious delight of mud into words in their first children's book "Mud Pie Annie."
Along with Annie you'll feel the warm mud squish between your toes, you'll dip your hands into the foamy, sloppy mess, and you'll create culinary masterpieces to rival the work of the world's best chefs.
Buchanan, who collaborated with her daughter on "Mud Pie Annie," will be at Barnes & Noble Bookstore at Rivertown Crossings Mall on Saturday.
She will introduce children to this wonderful book and help them create their own mud pies with chocolate pudding, gummy worms, pretzel sticks and other edible treats.
Mud Pie Annie is a creative, spunky little girl whose determination and imagination turn her into the world's best and dirtiest chef. She is undeterred by the stares of the neighborhood children and the irritation of her parents
"All of us who are parents and grandparents have played in the mud," said Buchanan, 63. "I'm not so sure kids today play in the mud.
"Adults like Annie because she does what we did. Children like her because she's interesting."
Annie is indeed interesting. She's blissfully unaware of the mess she's making as her imagination takes flight around the world. Her mud creations include "recipes from 'round the world, mouth-watering cuisine like arroz con mantequilla and Italian almondine. Rugelach from Russia, mud-crust baklava from Greece ..."
Buchanan and Shafer aren't afraid to challenge children with words that are beyond their vocabulary.
"Children will love the way the words sound." Buchanan said. "I call it read-aloud-ability. The book will introduce them to new things that are just beyond the reach. They can grow into Mud Pie Annie."
The magnificent artwork adds depth and joy to the words of the authos. The illustrations by Joy Allen merited a showing at "Every Picture Tells a Story," a prestigious art gallery in Los Angeles that exhibits the nation's top children's illustrators.
"I think the art is so great that you want to lick it off the page." Buchanan said.
