Kids’ Club Review by Greta: Cook’s cook : the cook who cooked for Captain Cook

Syndetics book coverCook’s cook : the cook who cooked for Captain Cook by Gavin Bishop.


I loved the watercolour pictures and the fact the book had recipes – they ate kangaroo, dog, albatross, turtles, stingray and pease porridge! I learnt about where Captain Cook and his people travelled, about the places and the people who lived there, and that they visited other countries too – not just New Zealand.
