A gorgeous copy of this wonderful children's cookbook - a tale of kitchen utensils and appliances come to life to teach Mary Frances how to cook and behave in the kitchen. Lovely inscription from an aunt to her niece on the front free endpaper, dated 1920. Near fine in fair but scarce jacket. Scarce thus.
