Julia Child: An Extraordinary Life in Words and Pictures

Julia Child was extraordinary in many ways. Even so, this biography shows how highly relatable Julia Child was, from her nonchalance about making cooking mistakes on TV to 22929066.jpgher dedication to keep trying until a recipe became perfect.

Julia’s unique personality and voice shine through, and the pacing of the story kept me turning pages. Julia Child: An Extraordinary Life in Words and Pictures is a great nonfiction read by Erin Hagar with pages of art by Joanna Gotham in between chapters.
