Madame Pamplemousse and Her Incredible Edibles, Paperback / softback Book

Madame Pamplemousse and Her Incredible Edibles Paperback / softback

Illustrated by Sue Hellard


Madame Pamplemousse is the story of Madeleine, forced to work in her unpleasant uncle's horrible restaurant, The Squealing Pig.

By chance she comes across the most marvellous shop, run by Madame Pamplemousse, which is quiet, discreet, yet full of delicious and otherworldly 'edibles' - Pterodactyl Bacon, Scorpion Tails in Smoked Garlic Oil, and Great Squid Tentacle in Jasmine-Scented Jelly.

A quiet comradeship develops between Madeleine, Madame Pamplemousse, and Madame's cat, Camembert. And together they create some wonderful culinary magic.

Exquisite, beautifully formed prose that has echoes of Angela Carter belies a narrative that is full of pace.

A wonderful fairy tale that will appeal to both adults and children.
