because they want to help the citizens of their heads town. Rose even wanted to play matchmaker try for two the same reasons (even though her parents forbade her). The point is that magic was always good by the people from Filbert's family, since their objection was to improve or to save people's lives. Then comes, Albatross' family, who wants to steal the "Booke" either to be famous (like Aunt Lily) either to enslave the entire population (like Mr. Butter). The ingredients they use are obviously attracted to each other, straight up weird (like tears from they eye of an evil wizard) and the result is just chaotic.

Added DiffLines:

* LuddWasRight: Subverted in the third book. Mr. Butter believes that their advanced technology in their Industry is way better than the traditional way done by small local bakeries, because they can make much more sweets in less time and full with ingredients that won't rot the product. Rose doesn't even want to know what's inside those ingredients.

Added DiffLines:

* InnocentlyInsensitive: When Rose and Thyme clean the square after a fierce disco party, Thyme says to her that he liked the experience, for he was able to work with his "cool" aunt Lily. This hurts deeply Rose for she thought that he did it because he wanted to help her and her family.
* InsistentTerminology: It's the "Booke", not the "Book".

Added DiffLines:

* HiddenVillain: The first two books mentioned "Perforated Ladle", but we didn't see any of its members (besides Lily and her assistant). In the third installment, we finally meet them and hear of their EvilPlan about taking over the world via Mr. Butter's Industry.
* HowDoIShotWeb: When Rose and Thyme first tried a recipe from the "Booke", called Love Cookies, they had a hard time understanding what words like "half a fist" or "six songs" or "seven flames" actually meant when they had to measure the ingredients or the time and the temperature that were needed in order to prepare them, until they found a tab in the fridge explaining for them.

Added DiffLines:

* TheGoodTheBadAndTheEvil: Rose's rivalry between her and Aunt Lily doesn't compare with her and Mr. Butter, the owner of a big organisation who wants to enslave the entire country.

* ForWantOfNail: Assuming Lily was right, if the argument between Albatross and Filbert had never happened, then the two families wouldn't have stopped talking to each other.
* {{Foreshadowing}}: The events that lead to the conclusion that Lily [[spoiler: indeed wanted to steal the "Booke"]]:
** Rose finds a purple checker in the fridge door and, since Aunt Lily's pants are decorated with purple checkers, she immediately assumes that she was spying on them. Her brother, Thyme, dismisses this, saying that Aunt Lily wanted cafe.
** When Lily discovers "Albatross' Hidden Knowledge", a part of the "Booke" with Albatross' recipes, she says that she had heard about that, but she wasn't sure if it truly existed. Rose immediately snaps and tells her that she (Lily) didn't even knew that the "Booke" existed at the first place. Lily tries to save this by telling her that she knew that her great grandfather had written some recipes of his own.
** While Lily was [[spoiler: looking at the "Booke"'s recipes, Rose notices that she has a greedy and evil smile on her face]].


* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: The first book is pretty light-hearted (despite [[spoiler: the [[BittersweetEnding downer ending]]]]) as it retells Rose's misadventures when they try somd recipes fron the "Booke".

* DealWithTheDevil: Happens to Rose twice:
** When she finds herself alone in the storage, fog starts to appear and a deep voice from the underworld talks to her and suggests to use "Aphrodite's emulsion" in order to become beautiful and gain the affection of everyone. Rose fantasizes at first all the good things that could happen to her after that (everyone loving her, her siblings starting to respect her, her parents letting her use the "Booke"), but realises that the result would be her leaving her town and abandoning her family, so she neglects the offer.
** Also happens when Aunt Lily invites her to go with her and make her famous via her TV show. She suggests feeding her family magic biscuits so they would forget that them and the "Booke" ever existed (just like she did with her parents). Rose is about to follow her, but changes her mind at the last second (much to Lily's dismay).
* DiscreetDiningDisposal: Averted. When Aunt Lily cooks dinner for the Bliss family, Thyme is seen consuming it (and praising the cooker), despite being stated that he only eats pasta. Either because the food is really that good or because he doesn't want to upset Aunt Lily (whom he has a crush on).
