Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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 plagued by damaging floods and storms of huge food. the town was a mess and the people feared for their lives.

Something had to be done, and in a hurry.

This is the most brilliant book for children! I read it at least 20 times in one year all through elementary. It was my favorite, it captures the short attention span of a child to read it. The story is all so surreal that you get lost in in. It's truly the best and I recommend it to everyone young and old. I'm still looking for it to have as my own.
