Mud Book - How To Make Pies And Cakes

$8.97 $14.95

Part artist’s book, part cookbook and part children’s book, Mud Book is a spirited, if not satirical, take on almost every child’s first attempt at cooking and making.

In the mid-1950s, legendary avant-garde composer John Cage and artist Lois Long created a truly marvelous object. 

Through the humble "mud pie", Cage and Long encourage children to explore their imagination and to get their hands dirty, and they offer this warning: Mud pies are to make and look at, not to eat.

Recommended for ages 3 - 5 years.
36 pages.
