When young Dylan O'Conner looks in the mirror at his Fuller, Nebraska, home, he sees a normal eight-year old boy who enjoys hearing stories from his Grandma Ruth about town magic that supposedly took place 150 years ago. But before long, reality proves that these stories are not merely whimsical tales of wonderment. They are, in fact, entirely true. Grandma Ruth reveals to Dylan that he is the coveted child: the one who has the birthright to revive the missing magic of Fuller. She teaches Dylan to perform miraculous feats, like healing injured animals and people. But soon, Dylan is forced to more quickly advance his new-found talent because the evil, witch-hating Cleansers have arrived. They boldly bring hostages, flames and murder into play, as they endeavor to purify humanity of witchcraft.

In her latest cookbook, Deborah Madison, America's leading authority on vegetarian cooking and author of Vegetarian Cooking for Everyone, reveals the surprising relationships between vegetables, edible flowers, and herbs within the same botanical families, and how understanding these connections can help home cooks see everyday vegetables in new light. Destined to become the new standard reference for cooking vegetables, Vegetable Literacy, by revered chef Deborah Madison, shows cooks that vegetables within the same family, because of their shared characteristics, can be used interchangeably in cooking. For example, knowing that dill, chervil, cumin, parsley, coriander, anise, and caraway come from the umbellifer family makes it clear why they're such good matches for carrots, also an umbel. With stunning images from the team behind Canal House cookbooks and website, and 150 classic and exquisitely simple recipes, such as Savoy Cabbage on Rye Toast with GruyèreCheese; Carrots with Caraway Seed, Garlic, and Parsley; and Pan-fried Sunchokes with Walnut Sauce and Sunflower Sprouts; Madison brings this wealth of information together in dishes that highlight a world of complementary flavors.
