Comparing two children's cook book's

I have chosen to write about two childrens cookbooks. The first is called "Gruesome Grub and Disgusting Dishes" written by Susan Martineau, illustrated by Martin Ursell. The second is called "Starting Cooking" written by Gill Harvey, illustrated by Norman Young. I chose childrens cookbooks as it was very difficult to find an adult cookbook with illustrations in it. When I did find adult cookbooks with illustrations in it they were very small and not very interesting to look at. In childrens cookbooks there is a lot more colour and interesting pictures. They have to be bright, colourful and full of interesting pictures so it is fun for children to look at them and read them. The books I have chosen have interesting, detailed pictures in them that look simple from a distance, but if you look closer have alot of detail in them.

The first book I am going to talk about is called "Gruesome Grub and Disgusting Dishes" written by Susan Martineau, illustrated by Martin Ursell. The style of this picture is quite simplified, but clever. The recipe I am looking at is called "Throat Throttler."
