Editorial Reviews

Review

“Its wry humor and illustrations worthy of a Roald Dahl creation make it worth a close look.” —School Library Journal

“This homage to Americana finds success looking backward, proudly reclaiming the rhythms of old stories and craftsmanship not so common in the digital age.” —Kirkus Reviews

Format: Hardcover
When I picked up this book I was instantly transported by the art. When I came on Amazon to read reviews, I was very surprised by the polarized responses. Many reviewers are super-concerned about the word, "hate." The father doesn't hate any people or animals, he hates a particular food. It is silly and funny and the collage illustration are so rich and filled with hidden items. Trust your child to be able to enjoy a silly book where an adult is acting ridiculous and immature and use it as an opportunity to talk! Maybe discuss with your child the perspectives and experiences of the different characters. To insist upon censoring the book because it has the word "hate" is quite frankly silly and a slippery slope. Be open minded and trust your kid to understand the difference between what a character in a book does and how he or she should behave.

Also, I have heard the author speak, and he mentioned this is based on his grandfather, and is a true story!

This is a great story told with amazing visual illustrations. It takes us through the cycle of something we can all relate to as kids- the one dish that one of our parents would regularly make, yet always cringe when it was served...in this story though, we all get our just revenge thanks to Wild Man Jack! Pick up this book as it is a nice and easy read of a good story...

This book has brought smiles to our children's faces and captivated them from beginning to end. Love the colors and the story. Totally helps our picky eaters to eat what I put on the table.

We love books by the Stead's and this book is no different. My 4 year old daughter LOVES this book and insists we read it at least once a day. It's a fun light read and perfect for it's intended audience.

My kids can't get enough of this book! The bright colors and call and responses make this book quite appealing to little ears. They ask for it regularly and never cease to be interested in the pictures and details. Highly recommended for preschool through early elementary ages!

This book is a work of art. Its great to be able to expose my child to art at a young age in a medium they enjoy.
Highly recommend.
