Bliss by Kathryn Littlewood

Twelve-year-old Rose Bliss wants to work magic in her family’s bakery as her parents do, but when they are called away and Rose and her siblings are left in charge, the magic goes awry and a beautiful stranger tries to talk Rose into giving her the BlissCookery Booke. 


I think this book is very interesting. It’s about a family with a magical cookbook. When the parents go away to help the mayor, the four children’s–Rosemary, Thyme, Sage and Leigh (Parsley)–never-before-seen aunt comes over. Rosemary and Thyme use the magical cookbook to try and help some people in the town. You wouldn’t believe what the magical recipes did! It all went wrong and the town went crazy. This is one of the best books I’ve ever read. I think this book is a contender for the OPLbery award.

The ancient art of baking happens to be in this book. Bliss is about a family that has a birthmark of a ladle and bakes magical things that help people. Each baked good has one weird ingredient. This book is distinguished because there are not many books that are about magical baking set in a modern time. I liked this book because it’s similar to Close to Famous where the girl has a dream about having a baking show on TV. In Bliss the girl has wanted to bake magical things but she’s not allowed.
