Photo courtesy of Jill Yomnick | Bob Bowling lords over his Edible Book contest creation, “War and Peace,” which won best in show. The contest was a fundraiser for The HUB, an afterschool program that feeds and gives youths on South Whidbey a place to relax. More than 30 creations, lots with punny titles, entered the Edible Book Contest.

Only six won first-place awards, and Bob Bowling’s “War and Peas” took the top prize — best in show.

Martha Forward’s “Huckleberry Fin” claimed most appetizing. She also received “most punderful” for “The Crepes of Wrath.”

Looking to the classics, Julie Spangler Bowling left with best visual presentation for “Breakfast at Tiffany’s.”

A pair of young chefs claimed awards for best entry children under 12. Olivia Varga and Zoe Eisenbray won the award with “Hoot,” and Riley Patching claimed second place for “A House for Hermit Crab.”

Winners were chosen by audience vote.

The event was a benefit for The HUB after-school program in Langley.
