    In this follow-up to Kids Kitchen are 100 new recipes for both sweet and savoury dishes - and they've all been designed and developed with children in mind.

    None of the recipes use sharp knives or are cooked on the hob, meaning they're safer for children to cook themselves (with adult supervision, of course). Most of the recipes use measuring jugs and measuring spoons and there are photographs to help children know exactly what to aim for.

    It even has dishes for children with gluten intolerances and coeliac disease. Among the recipes that can be added to family meals are up-side down baked potatoes, every-flavour pork chops and cashew couscous, while there are also over 50 baked treats including fresh lemon cupcakes and rainy day banana bread.

    With an action outfit for every occasion, Traction Man patrols the house. Whether he is saving toys (in latex space suit and Perspex helmet, teamed with Rocket Boots); searching the sink for the lost wreck of the sieve (in sub-aqua suit, fluorescent flippers and infra-red mask) or rescuing damsels in distress (in jungle pants, camouflage vest and a bandanna), Traction Man is never less than stylishly turned out and expertly accessorised. He is the last word in heroic fashion flair - until, that is, the day that he is presented with an all-in-one knitted green romper suit and matching bonnet by his owner's granny. Can Traction Man overcome the humiliation of his desperately dowdy new look and rediscover the action hero within or will the burden of the knitted green monstrosity be too great?
