Everything on a Waffle

by Polly Horvath

Groundwood Books Ltd | April 1, 2001 | Trade Paperback

Everything on a Waffle is rated 5 out of 5 by 2.

A Newbery Honor Book, a Boston Globe-Horn Book Award Honor Book, an ALA Notable Book, and winner of the Mr. Christie's Book Award and Sheila A. Egoff Children's Literature Award

Eleven-year-old Primrose is having a difficult time. Her parents have been lost at sea, but she knows -- somewhere, deep inside herself -- that they are still alive. While she waits for them to return, she must move in with her Uncle Jack. He's not exactly the most friendly guy, so Primrose finds comfort at the local restaurant called The Girl on the Red Swing. The owner, Kate, serves everything on a waffle, even fish and pasta.

But despite her quirkiness, she becomes a wonderful friend to Primrose, teaching her how to cook, listening to her problems and giving her sage advice.

Through a mixture of eccentric humor and probing philosophy, Polly Horvath makes Primrose's search for peace and understanding a most memorable one.
