Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

2012 Winner of the Theodor Seuss Geisel Award! James is a very picky eater. His dad has to get creative—very creative—in order to get James to eat foods he thinks he doesnt like. He presents James with a series of outlandish scenarios packed with fanciful and gross kid-friendly details—like pre-chewed gum as an alternative to broccoli and lumpy oatmeal that grows so big it eats the dog—in an effort to get James to eat. But it is eventually James himself who discovers that some foods are not so bad, after all, if youre willing to give them a try. This irreverently hilarious early reader, illustrated in full color, explores a universal point of contention between parent and child in a playful, satisfying way.

Synopsis:

Once upon a time, on a long, slow trip to Scotland, a little girl named Katerina-Elizabeth tossed her oatmeal overboardand#151;again, and again, and again. She was a picky eater, and oatmeal was her least favorite food.

And once upon a time, a small worm, no bigger than a piece of thread, swam alongside an ocean liner bound for Scotland and ate bowl after bowl of tossed oatmeal. He had never tasted anything as wonderful as oatmeal in his whole life. A. W. Flaherty and Scott Magoon unravel the Loch Ness legend in this whimsical picture book for the picky (and not-so-picky) eater in all of us.

Synopsis:

Plenty for picky eaters and their parents to giggle about in this Geisel-winning early reader about daring to try new foods.

Synopsis:

James is a very picky eater. So picky, in fact, that his long-suffering father has to get pretty creative in order to get James to eat foods he thinks he doesn't like. As a series of outlandish scenarios packed with gross and fanciful kid-friendly details unfolds, James gradually discovers that when you're brave enough to try new foods, they're not always that bad, after all.
