Editorial Reviews

Review

2012 Winner of the Theodor Seuss Geisel Award

 

"Eager and picky eaters alike will enjoy the wordplay and outrageous situations, which create humor from a familiar source of family tension."—Booklist

 

"The sophisticated yet silly humor will appeal to new readers wanting something a little different. . . . A perfect segue into chapter books, this easy reader is sure to be a crowd pleaser." —School Library Journal

 

"Stories with all the wit and good humor parents can often lose during dinner table battles. A palatable strategy." —Chicago Tribune

 

"The illustrations are fun and whimsical, which causes even picky youngsters to listen attentively without complaints." —Scaramento Book Review

A dad gets his son to try new foods by telling interesting stories.

My daughter is 3 and loves this book, and I think she'll probably still love it when she's 8.

The author takes several eating situations and tells tale tells to show the child that eating various items like eggs and oatmeal are a good idea after all. An example, the son tells the father he doesn't want to drink milk. Father replies fine, won't it be nice to have soft bones? and gives some humorous examples of being very flexible before realizing there would be negatives to being a spaghetti bones. Pretty funny and great for children's imagination as well as encouraging them to eat. We started making up our own tall tales with my son getting into the act.

This is such a great book, and a very unique take on an old theme that drives all parents crazy--picky eaters. My daughter is 3 and loves this book, and I think she'll probably still love it when she's 8. I think it would appeal to kids of a pretty wide age range.

This book is terrific and my five year old (not at all picky eater) loves it. We've read this book every night before bed since getting it and he's memorized it, he enjoys it so much! The humor is right on the mark for kids and also amusing for adults. The author has taken a unique approach to an age-old complaint. This book engages kids from the inside cover flap (a yes/no test to see if the reader is a picky eater) and also has great illustrations. Highly recommended!

My 7-year-old daughter is a picky eater, so I got this book for her hoping it would help her laugh at how silly pickiness is at times. I am a semi-picky eater myself, so I do understand that not everyone likes every food, but the father in this book came up with some really fun and creative ways to show his son what being picky can be like. Quite an enjoyable read and the pictures really help tell the story, too.

This book is very cute. A dad gets his son to try new foods by telling interesting stories. My daughter is a picky eater so she can relate to it.

I bought this book for my grandson, who is a very picky eater. He loved this book. He grabbed it from me and read it immediately, out loud. It was quite amusing.
