Following on from Love Grows Everywhere, A Pinch of Love is Barry Timms and Tisha Lee's second book on the subject of love—this time celebrating the love that comes through baking, cooking and sharing food.
In this beautiful story told in rhyming verse, a boy and his grandmother, are preparing for a big neighborhood bake-off. See the loving (and sticky!) moments of their tender relationship, along with the many other warm bonds that exist within their community.
Barry Timms’ gentle text skillfully links these loving moments with the love that is represented by the food, while Tisha Lee’s lush illustrations give real depth to this vibrant and diverse neighborhood.
This book is a warm and charming tale, perfect for Valentine’s Day and beyond.
About the Author
Barry Timms enjoys the way that stories bring people together. He grew up in the rolling, rugged Cornish landscape but now lives by an old water tower in South London and is a city boy at heart. Barry can often be found with pencil in hand, writing or drawing, or both. Most exciting of all is putting words and images together, and the surprising results that can happen. Barry likes road movies, ghost trains, and exploring forgotten side streets. His books include This is NOT A Unicorn!, The Twelve Green Days of Christmas, Where Happiness Lives, and Noah and the Starbird.
Tisha Lee is an author and illustrator living in Northern California. She studied Fine Art & Art History at the University of California, Davis. Now she happily works out of a light-filled studio in her backyard with a few dogs at her feet. She mostly uses gouache for her illustrations and finds inspiration in the details and diversity of everyday life. Love Grows Everywhere is her first book.
“The second book from Timms and Lee celebrates love and how it can come from cooking, baking and sharing food. Pitched as a Valentine’s Day gift.”—The Bookseller
