Jack and Annie dropped by the cookery this weekend. These two children’s literature characters are always cooking up curiosity with young readers. Mary Pope Osborne planted the seed for our next cookery adventure with dates. In her Magic Tree House series #34, “Season of the Sandstorms,” Jack and Annie shake the delicate fruit from date palm trees in the desert.
