I Will Never Not Ever Eat a Tomato (Charlie and Lola) Paperback – September 15, 2003
Frequently Bought Together
Customers Who Bought This Item Also Bought
Lauren Child's wacky, expressive sketches of Lola and Charlie (much like those in Clarice Bean, That's Me) are cut out and superimposed on all sorts of textures and patterns from wallpaper to wood. Fuzzy, enlarged photographs of bowls of peas, or fish sticks, or big carrots are pasted right on top to great effect. This funny, endearing look at how children's tastes can be based more on preconception than taste buds is sure to infuse levity into the daily dinner-table struggle. The author's dedication? "With love from Lauren / who is keen on Marmite / but would rather not eat a raisin." (Ages 3 to 8) --Karin Snelson --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

What I like best about this book are the real photographs of the foods (peas, carrots, fish sticks, etc.) that are incorporated into the fun cartoon illustrations.
This is a engaging, slightly offbeat story which makes it stand out from the zillions of other children's books out there.
The idea is great but it is the colorful illustrations that I love. The figures are cut outs that are placed ingeniously on all kinds of bacgrounds, lending texture and vibrance to the story. I'm definately giving this book to all the fussy eaters I know. Very imaginative and well done.
It could be a recipe for disaster -- I'm certain this situation would have played out quite differently with me and MY little sister -- but Charlie's creativity and sense of fun save the day.
My seven-year old fussy eater nearly fell out of his chair laughing when we read this book. He clearly identified with, and enjoyed, Lola and her reasoning (for example, peas are "too small" and "too green"). While I'm pretty sure my son will not change his eating habits because of this story, it did give him a sense that he is not alone in the world with his funky tastes while reinforcing the idea that his tastes may change.
Great story, cute illustrations, good lesson.
