A to Z Challenge: N is for Nicolai

AND...I'm back on track with the Blogging From A to Z Challenge—week 3 begins today! Not sure what the challenge is about? Click here for the deets, or here for my theme reveal. And of course, you're welcome to read my past posts—starting with the letter "A" here.

Also, if you haven't read my "C is for canola" post, you should—you could WIN a set of all 15 of the Superman Duffy graphic novels, signed by the author. And that's no myth—for real!

N is for Nicolai

Who is Nicolai? Good question. Nicolai Driscoll is the new kid that shows up in book four of the Superman Duffy graphic novels, Tasting My Story. He's a chef...or at least he wants to be when he grows up.

Cartoon me is pretty competitive, so when the school announces a baking contest, Nicolai becomes "my" biggest competition (off the track...on the track, that's Lightning!) To beat Nicolai, I have to help Grandma find the recipe for the delicious monster cookies that have been in the family for decades.

It's a bit of a mystery. Not just where the recipe is, but the book itself. And the author takes "me" on a pretty wild journey back in time...

But there's also recipes in the book, including the one for the cookies—which really ARE delicious. It's the perfect book for kids who love to read mysteries AND like to bake.

And, do you want to know a secret? Nicolai was based on the author's nephew, Nick, who at the time this book was written wanted to be a chef. To read more about, him...check out Tasting My Story. You know the drill—order it via the Alberta Canola Producers Commission or try to WIN all 16 books here and here.

Gotta jet! Hope you have a most excellent Monday. See you tomorrow for "O"—literally!
