I enjoyed the characters, even if this is a very brief book. Veggie seems to be reasonable but fun. Carb is a bit hyper and all over the place. They are relate-able to children's different personalities. Uncle Bear is a nice bear, although truthfully his picture made me think he may be a bit grumpy. The little mystery in the story is sweet.
I think children will enjoy reading this book, coloring the pictures, and making the recipe. There is a lot to offer for them to become involved in the story. It would make a very cute Valentine's Day gift, but also a very cute book for any day of the week.
