To kick off National Library Week

What is an edible book?

It’s any representation of a book title that is made primarily (95%) from edible materials. It can look like a book, refer to a character, be a pun on a title etc. It can be as fancy as a decorated cake or as simple as a bowl of grapes (The grapes of wrath?)
Need some inspiration? Google “edible books”.
