From Publishers Weekly
Frances loves nothing better than jam and bread, and turns up her nose at other kinds of food. Then her mother starts giving Frances jam and bread for breakfast, lunch and dinner. "What I am/is sick of Jam," Frances sings to herself. That's the end of Frances's jam-only days, as she discovers, in her own winsome way, that variety really is the spice of mealtimes.

“Makes its point for fussy eaters … gently, amusingly, and most effectively.” (ALA Booklist)

If you've never read this book before, this version may be ok. However, I'd recommend sticking with the original, unabridged edition. It's not much longer (maybe 1 or 2 pages total?) but is better with all the original text.
Another good one about picky eaters is the D.W. the Picky Eater in the Arthur series.
We had originally checked this out from the library from their early reader section (as it says here on the product listing: I Can Read Book 2). However, this book turned out to be a different edition. It doesn't appear to be an I Can Read book at all, but instead is larger and quite a bit longer. This edition has a more complex vocabulary, including words such as "doily" that aren't included in the I Can Read edition. This is fine for us, but you might want to make sure you are getting the edition you want. (Attached photo shows absence of "I Can Read" logo.)
