I love the tiny chef, I love his tiny house, I love his tiny Mise En Place, and his ersatz cookware, and his calendar, and his hat. I think it’s fair to say I love this book top to bottom. It’s hilarious, charming, and great for making adults say silly words.
The Tiny Chef, a small herbivore with an enormous heart, goes on a quest to find his missing recipe book in this irresistible debut picture book from the creators of @TheTinyChefShow.
Our debut picture book adventure finds the Tiny Chef at home in his kitchen on a beautiful day, but not all is well inside the Chef's stump. He's misplaced his favorite recipe book--the one he uses to cook all of his best dishes, like his famous stew, which he always makes on the first day of fall, and that day is here! What is the Chef to do! He practically tears apart his house looking for it. He gets so frustrated he throws a tantrum. But then he does what we all have to do sometimes when we're upset. He counts to ten. He goes for a nice long walk. And that's when inspiration strikes! A little rosemary, some mushrooms, and the Chef might have a brand-new recipe after all. And that's when his recipe book finally appears. Right where he left it--now isn't that weird?
About the Author
RACHEL LARSEN has dedicated her life to protecting Chef and helping him bring his tiny vision to the world. While neither seems to recall exactly when they met, they are two peas in a pod and are totally inseparable. Chef counts on Rachel to help him with his on camera performance, drive him to his voice lessons, and to taste test his new dishes. No detail of Chef's life is too tiny for Rachel to offer help in any way she can. Watch closely, and you'll see how the Chef shines when Rachel is in the room. ADAM REID and the Tiny Chef share a love of storytelling, art, and board games. Adam often reads books aloud to Chef and they'll stay up late talking about old movies and their favorite shows. Adam helps Chef find just the right words and makes terrible doodles of The Chef's wonderful ideas. OZI AKTURK met the Tiny Chef in New Zealand and they became fast friends over their passion for adventure and food. One day Ozi leaned over and whispered in The Chef's ear "Why don't you make a cooking show?" and their lives would never be the same. Ozi now pours all her energy into using her production powers, making sure the Chef is seen in his best light and at his best angles on camera.
