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

The best thing about this book is the front cover. It all goes downhill from there. Whoever wrote it must have had a rhyming dictionary in one hand and a bottle of beer in the other. I didn't even read it to my children-put it in our garage sale pile. Sad waste of money.

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.
