Editorial Reviews

Review


"Newcomer McQueen's polished digital artwork gives his story some hipster cred as he pits two sneakers-wearing squirrels against a rabbit diva. The opening page shows an ear of corn on a checkered tablecloth; a squirrel in Buddy Holly glasses sniffs appreciatively: "This is Bob." A page turn introduces a squirrel in a party hat: "This is Rob. These two squirrels love corn on the cob." Several more animals and a robot show up ("Mama?" the robot keeps asking mechanically), and then Ella Mae Dobbs appears. She's "a bit of a snob," a white, long-eared bunny with perfectly applied lipstick, Jackie O. sunglasses, and an expression of withering scorn. Her eating habits don't make any sense to the squirrels: "Ella Mae Dobbs loves pan-seared tofu." The squirrels conspire: "I want to see Ella eat corn on the cob," says Bob to Rob. There's screenplay-style wit in the contrast between Ella Mae's hauteur and the squirrels' high school humor; with the help of the robot's innovative cooking, Ella Mae thaws out and laughs. A quiet protest against snooty foodies.: —Publishers Weekly

What a cute cast of critters/characters and a fun ending to their eating adventures. Clever writing and beautiful illustrations. A modern day Dr. Suess.

Cute story! Agreed that this is a modern day Dr. Seuss book! And we love Corn on the Cob!! Crunch ... Crunch ... Crunch!!
I'm not going to spoil the ending, but, it sure made me want some???? And I don't mean tofu!
(i want my mama)
The graphics are great and the story line is adorable! It makes for a great story to be read to a group of kids and can be very interactive, depending on who reads it to them!

I love the linguistics of this story, everything weaves together harmoniously yet is simple enough for my 6 and 9 year old to read. I have four children ages 2 through 9 and they all enjoy hearing about Bob and Rob.
