About the author
Top reviews from other countries
There are even two real recipes at the end of the book, “Paati's Tomato Sauce” and “Neela's Tomato Chutney”, that both have extensive preparation instructions. These recipes are followed by some “Fun Facts” about tomatoes, a section about farm workers, and then a note from the author.
This was a great book to read to kids, and we all really loved the artwork. We are excited to try the two recipes, and see how tasty they are for ourselves!
