From the Publisher
The tiny town of Chewandswallow was very much like any other tiny town except for its weather which came three times a day, at breakfast, lunch and dinner. But it never rained rain and it never snowed snow and it never blew just wind. It rained things like soup and juice. It snowed things like mashed potatoes. And sometimes the wind blew in storms of hamburgers. Life for the townspeople was delicious until the weather took a turn for the worse. The food got larger and larger and so did the portions. Chewandswallow was plagues by damaging floods and storms of huge food. The town was a mess and the pople feared for their lives. Something had to be done, and in a hurry. END

I'm getting a bit tired of it though because my daughter ALSO likes hearing the story and I'm afraid she is going to figure out how to get there before I do.
Secret Weapon: she falls asleep. I have coffee. Suck it, child!
This was my absolute favorite book as a child. The story line is unique & original does not "talk down" to a child's level and so very enjoyable to be read by adults also. However, It's the illustrations that truly make this book a true treasure. Each page is filled edge to edge with the most detailed illustrations in an artistic crosshatch style. You can tell true passion was given to this book when it was written back in the 1970's! :)
((If you've seen the movie by the same title but have not read the book, please give this book a chance!! The creators of the movie took some creative liberties and went off in a completely different direction. In my opinion, the movie was off-putting because of my love for the original storyline & illustrations.))
