Publisher's Weekly Review

With Georgeanne Brennan's Green Eggs and Ham Cookbook, illus. by Dr. Seuss, photos by Frankie Frankeny, readers can find out whether they like the title dish plus more than 40 others. Spiral-bound inside with a paper-over-board covering, and crammed with kooky concoctions, kids will be scarfing down The Cat in the Hat's Blueberry Bumplings (aka scones) and Kartoom Croquettes (a chicken-and-peanut mixture shaped into logs) from If I Ran the Zoo.

School Library Journal Review

Gr 3-6-This cookbook goes far beyond what one might expect. Many children have probably made green eggs and ham using copious amounts of green food coloring, but here, the ham is green thanks to a coating made from cilantro and tomatillos, and the eggs' usually yellow yolks are covered by a mound of guacamole. Many other recipes are equally creative; the Pink Yink Ink Drink is yummy, healthy, and sure to be a hit. While some of the connections to the Dr. Seuss books are a bit of a stretch, all include quotes that clarify their ties to specific stories. As with many cookbooks that are written to fit a predetermined theme, there is a wide range in both the difficulty and complexity of the recipes. Adult assistance will be needed for many of them, and several will send parents to the store for ingredients (shallots, rock shrimp, clams). However, the dishes' playful names and inventive presentations will have children trying new foods and adults enjoying the flavorful combinations. A great addition to the world of book-themed cookbooks.-Genevieve Gallagher, Murray Elementary School, Charlottesville, VA (c) Copyright 2010.
