Vintage Rennet Dessert Is Nice Book 1947 Red Hardcover Dorothy Kunhardt Forbes Lithograph Twine Binding Illustrated Children Gastronomical

Regular price $55.00
What a charming red hardcover copy of Dorothy Kunhardt's classic gastronomic children’s book printed in red and black ink. Author of Pat the Bunny, Kunhardt (1901-1979) was a popular children’s book author best known for the “touch-and-feel” in her bunny book. In Rennet Dessert Is Nice, she writes a story about an old man with a red beard and red slippers, who is continually eating rennet dessert out of a red bowl. When the people all come to see what he is doing, he tells them that they must guess what he is thinking about and if they guess correctly, he will give them something nice.

Rennet is used in making cheese and when mixed with sugar or honey, milk, and flavoring, to make a dessert called junket. This work is a variation on another text entitled, "Junket Is Nice", published by Kunhardt with Harcort, Brace, and Co. in 1933.

Oblong 8vo. [32] ll. Original printed boards, spine with some wear and loss to head and tail of spine, clean and crisp internally.
