This was a fun book to read about Julia Child and how she became one of America's most beloved chefs. The story is told in a comic book-like format, with speech bubbles and lots of pictures divided up on the pages. I did find the font a bit distracting to read (it's typed out to look like handwritten notes) and some of the pages had too much text and/or too many illustrations going on. However, the story was fun to read, and reminded me of watching that Amy Adams/Meryl Streeo movie "Julie & Julia." Even though some recipes are featured in the book and recounted as "fool proof" for the American audience to follow, they sounded difficult but fun to read!
