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.

Carl Warner is a genius. This book is a most beautiful explanation of artistic process and imagination. It's fascinating, but other works by Mr. Warner are also wonderful. Check out "Food Landscapes" too. Mr. Warner's works will appeal to all age levels. Children will love it as well as the adults who may share it with them. Everyone can enjoy his magical visions using food as the palette for images and stories.

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!
