Note: 
It’s 1945 and fifth grade chocoholic Dorrie Meyers has to come up with a recipe for her class’s dessert contest. Cooking disasters abound until her cousin Victor, a Holocaust survivor recently arrived from a DP camp in Europe, shares a recipe from his lost family’s bakery. Written as a period piece, this pleasant family story evokes 1940’s Chicago down to the last detail and rings true as a portrait of Jewish-American life of the era. The brown-and-white illustrations are old-fashioned, matching the feel of the text. Printed entirely in chocolate-brown ink and decorated with period details, the book is as sweet as a chocolate dessert.
