Summary
A father tells outlandish stories while trying to get his young son, who is a very picky eater, to eat foods he thinks he will not like.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "In stories spotlighting disgusting broccoli, smelly lasagna, repulsive milk, lumpy oatmeal, and slimy eggs, this hilarious chapter book details mealtime standoffs between a young boy, James, and his dad. The mixed-media cartoon illustrations extend the humor and drama in scenes of James, who is furious as Dad offers wry alternatives to the food James refuses: We have this very sweaty sock, soaked in sweat sweated by the world's fastest and tastiest runner. As the stories progress, Dad's fantasies get wilder: a troll, who lives in the basement and wears a Kiss the Cook apron, has whipped up the mushroom lasagna; the carton of eggs in the refrigerator are actually dinosaur eggs. In the climax, Dad's stories finally convince James to eat, and in the closing scene, he smiles at his empty plate. Eager and picky eaters alike will enjoy the wordplay and outrageous situations, which create humor from a familiar source of family tension.--Rochman, Haze. Copyright 2010 Booklist"
