Hello Kitty books!!

The holidays are coming up and you know what that means - shopping! Yep, its time to start crossing off names from your gift list.  And what makes a terrific gift - Hello Kitty books!  Say what?!  I'm serious!  Who doesn't love the stylish and chic little girl dubbed, Hello Kitty?  I know that I do.  Of course, I have a preference for Keroppi, but that's more to do with my love of frogs.  Anyhow, it was announced earlier this year that Hello Kitty was not a cat, but was a little girl who owned a cat.  How crazy is that?!  Talk about a revelation for fans of the popular toy - me included! 

Thanks to Quirk Books, we have two fantastic books to choose from:

about book:
No one does sweet like Hello Kitty! Filled with simple recipes, beautiful yet playful photography, and Hello Kitty’s signature charm, The Hello Kitty Baking Book is a cookbook that’s yummy through and through. From Hello Kitty Cake Pops to Chococat Cake and Pretty Bow Pumpkin Pie, there’s something for everyone to make and enjoy. Featuring over two dozen easy-to-follow recipes, The Hello Kitty Baking Book is the perfect cookbook for anyone who loves Hello Kitty, desserts, or both!

my thoughts:
How awesome does that sound?  Sweets in the shape of Hello Kitty and her cool friends, Chococat and Keroppi!  This is the perfect gift for family and friends who love to bake.  There are recipes for cakes, cookies, cupcakes, candy and more.  They will devour each recipe with relish!  Plus, all the great photos will whet their appetite in anticipation of the yummy, colorful, and delectable desserts they will inevitably whip up!

about book:

my thoughts:
What a cute book cover! Hello Kitty waving "hello" to her fans - I love it!  This is the perfect gift for your loved ones who enjoy creating scarves, toys, and other handmade treats via crochet.  Yep, crochet!  We all have a friend or family member who is considers crocheting to be their jam - you know its true!  Well, this book is for them.  Imagine all the fun they can have making new dolls for their nieces and nephews.  They will enjoy getting lost in this sweet little book and come out of it with a few new handmade treats.  How fun!

Talk about a great way to toast Hello Kitty's 40th anniversary - two new books dedicated to celebrating this global icon in the form of a cake or a doll made of yarn.  These books will make great gifts for those you love.  Plus, I think they are a terrific way to spend an afternoon with you Hello Kitty obsessed daughter or niece - you can bake or crochet together! 

Thank you to Quirk Books for providing me with copies of these books!
