Format: Hardcover
Just when you thought there couldn't possibly be anything new in the world of ultra creative children's books, along comes Carl Warner and A World of Food: Discover Magical Lands Made of Things You Can Eat. Trust me, you've never seen anything like this before, and every member of your family, young or old, will be mesmerized by the photos in this book.

Mr. Warner works with food stylists to painstakingly arrange food into ridiculously spectacular landscapes, categorized by color. He uses a triangular table-top in his studio to photograph his scenes in layers, from the front to the back and then puts it all together into one cohesive unit in post-production. One of his greatest challenges is working faster than the rate at which the food wilts. It can take several days to get just one of these landscapes set up and photographed.

Inside this book, you'll find a green forest, red mountains, a pink candy land, a yellow desert and much more. Every single object in each picture is made from edibles, and you will love studying the pictures to identify every food in each picture - from mushrooms, bacon bits and pasta to broccoli, chocolate and lobsters. If you find yourselves stumped, you can look in the back of the book at a key, revealing all the details. Carl's expertise with lighting and photography really make his images extraordinary.

You and your children will be thoroughly entertained and inspired by the sheer creativity of this most imaginative book. Be warned, you will find yourself getting hungry as you read the book. And just in case you are wondering, yes, some of the food is unavoidably wasted due to spoiling, and the rest is happily eaten by those involved in the landscape process.

I borrowed this book for my 17 month old daughter from our local library, and it quickly became one of her favorites. Why? Warner is as good with words as he is with food. Yes, the pictures are ingenious and beautiful, but the text is equally engaging. My daughter will lay down and listen while I read it to her at nap time. She even fell asleep to its lyrical flow several times! Now we own a copy, and I couldn't be happier to have this book in her library.

A strange, somewhat curious little book that still manages to engage.
How to describe it. Well it is aimed at children but it is likely that many foodies and those with an innovative eye might find something of interest as well - whilst saying that they bought it for their children!
This is a slim tome dominated by large, vibrant and somewhat strange images. Photographer Carl Warner is trying to encourage children to learn about different foods and stop being fussy eaters by exploring a range of miniature colourful landscapes, organised by colour and accompanied by a short humorous verse.
So, for example, one gets to consider that "If all the world were brown, We'd live on chocolate cake, Where chocolate trains would ride around a melted-toffee lake" and this is accompanied by a wonderful chocolate train riding around on chocolate bar rails within a chocolate forest.
Many of these images would look great framed up, but it is sad that the book has been designed so that there is the fold running right in the middle. A larger size book or smaller pictures would have allowed you to even frame a chosen picture or two when you have finished with the book - but maybe that was the intention to stop this!
Whether this book will engage children to knowingly change their ways is debatable, yet maybe it would hit many on a subconscious level. Anyway, one could even see adults taking inspiration from this book to perhaps create some weird and wonderful foodscapes with their own dishes.
A paperback version of this book is to be published in addition to a hardback edition (reviewed here), which might make an impulse buy a little easier to make due to the price difference (GBP6 versus GBP10). This is of those books that you will either grab after a quick look on the shelf or leave it there questioning its purpose - but it is certainly worthy of a browse and consideration at the very least.

I bought this book for my 4 year old son, and he really enjoys it. It is one of my favorite books - definitely a treasure. Not only is it fun to look at, but there are several ways to use this to educate: talk about new (and mostly healthy!) foods, habitats, colors (the scenes are organized by colors), and rhyming words/poetry. There are some great vocabulary words in here for older kids, too. If you are a working on reading skills, this is a great book to have students make connections, make predictions about what kinds of foods will be used for each color, etc. It would also make a fun writing prompt - let kids pick a picture and write a story about the scene, or use it as inspiration for an art class. I used it today in a 1st grade reading class and the kids really loved it! There are so many fun ways to enjoy this book and to use it as a teaching tool or inspiration!

What a great baby shower gift for the "foodie" mom or dad to be in your life! Each page is done by color with a corresponding rhyming stanza. The verses are very sweet and of course the pictures are fantastic! My 4yr. old nephew loved it, and never fear parents, there's a photo index in the back so when your little one asks "what's that?" you can actually tell them. Clever, colorful, and creative it's enjoyable for all ages. P.S. In our house, after some debate, we all decided we want to live on the "purple page" in houses made of garlic!
