Children today live in a play world that is created more by others than by their own world of fantasy. It is good for children to be able to identify with a (grown-up) person that they have thought up themselves, so that they can become acquainted with their own limitations, interests and living environment. This idea is the basis for a series of cookbooks for children. The cookbooks are inspired by a variety of fantasy worlds for children. There are recipes for princesses, astronauts, sailors, etc. The children, alone or with a little help, are able to prepare the recipes themselves.
