Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

It's time for lunch, and one little mouse is famished! In fact, he's so hungry that once he starts eating, he can't stop. He sinks his teeth into a crisp white turnip, gobbles up some orange carrots, devours an ear of yellow corn, then tosses back some tender green peas. He's full, but this mouse keeps on munching until his bulging belly won't hold another bite.

Parents will see their own toddlers in this perky tale, and toddlers won't get enough of the gregarious little mouse. They'll proudly identify the colors of his (and their) favorite foods, and enjoy guessing what fruit or vegetable he'll eat next. Color-savvy readers are sure to spot the rainbow contained in the background pages-- and almost everyone will agree that this is one book about colors that makes the plain old primaries look positively pale!

An ALA Notable Book

Synopsis:

One hungry mouse peeks out of his hole and sniffs ... LUNCH! Children can guess what fruit or vegetable comes next as the voracious rodent munches his way through yellow corn, green peas, orange carrots, and the rest of the colors vibrantly represented by Denise Fleming's unique, eye-catching style.

About the Author

Denise Fleming explains that Lunch combines two of her favorite topics-- color and food. "I wanted to create a color book full of colors-- bright, bold colors, and lots of them-- not just red, blue, yellow, and green. So I started with a small gray mouse who eats his way through the basic colors (although I admit to sneaking pink in there, too)."

No paint or brushes are used to create the art in this book, nor is Fleming's art a collage. She creates the illustrations as images within handmade paper, a technique called "pulp painting."

Ms. Fleming lives in Toledo, Ohio.
