JUNKET IS NICE

DOROTHY KUNHARDT

Dorothy Kunhardt’s whimsical children’s book Junket is Nice, which is being published in July 2013 by The New York Review Children’s Collection. 

This book, which was first published in 1933 and has been out of print for decades, was Kunhardt’s first book published prior to her hugely successful Pat the Bunny.  Called “A rare book of irresistible nonsense” by the New York Times back when it was first published and recently featured again in the New York Times Dining section (6/18/13), this sweet tale of a man with a red beard eating so much Junket that passersby wants to know what he’s thinking about as he eats this sweet dessert will delight readers young and old with its guessing element.   Is he thinking about a kangaroo jumping over a glass of orange juice or a pig taking a cold bath?  The only person who knows the real answer in this silly yet poignant picture book is a little boy on a tricycle.

WHAT IS JUNKET?

Junket is a delicious custard and a lovely dessert.

But why is the old man with a red beard and red slippers eating such an enormous bowl of junket, and what could he possibly be thinking about while he feasts?

That’s a good question! And one that the old man poses to the crowds and crowds of people that gather to watch him. In fact, almost everyone in the whole world wants to know the answer to this riddle.

And only one little boy has the answer.

This ingenious book of inspired nonsense was the very first from Dorothy Kunhardt, whose Pat the Bunny has delighted generations of young children.
