I Will Never Not Ever Eat a Tomato

by

I Will Never Not Ever Eat a Tomato Cover

 

Staff Pick

Hate peas? Beets? Lima beans? Anytime, dining time, becomes an extravaganza time with clever Charlie setting the menu for his younger (and finicky) sister, Lola. Lauren Child's zany mixed-media collage illustrations convey a slightly off-kilter universe, in which, all the remarkably named foods are delicious. A moonsquirter, anyone?
Recommended by Suzy, Powell's Books at PDX

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Lola is a fussy eater. A very fussy eater. She won't eat her carrots (until her brother Charlie reveals that they're orange twiglets from Jupiter). She won't eat her mashed potatoes (until Charlie explains that they're cloud fluff from the pointiest peak of Mount Fuji). There are many things Lola won't eat, including — and especially — tomatoes. Or will she? Two endearing siblings star in a witty story about the triumph of imagination over proclivity.

Review:

"[E]ven younger readers who find Lola's stance perfectly reasonable will join her in this engagingly playful head game." Kirkus Reviews

Review:

"Youngsters will never — not ever — pass up a second helping." Publishers Weekly

Review:

"If the plot is unsurprising, the illustrations are surely not. They are wildly patterned mixed-media collages, including vegetable photographs, and very funny indeed." The New York Times Book Review

Review:

"Child has created two likable, winsome siblings with spunk and imagination....Even finicky youngsters will enjoy this tasty treat." School Library Journal

Synopsis:

Two endearing siblings star in this witty story — the winner of the Kate Greenaway Medal — about the triumph of imagination over proclivity. Full color.

Synopsis:

The creator of the acclaimed CLARICE BEAN, THAT'S ME cooks up a droll and ingenious treat for picky eaters and the people who love them.

Lola is a fussy eater. A VERY fussy eater. She won't eat her carrots (until big brother Charlie reveals that they are really orange twiglets from Jupiter). She won't eat her mashed potatoes (until Charlie explains they are cloud fluff from the pointiest peak of Mount Fuji). There are many, many things Lola absolutely will not eat, including—and especially—tomatoes. Or will she?

Join two endearing siblings for a smorgasbord of fun in Lauren Child's witty story about the triumph of imagination over proclivity.

Synopsis:

A fussy eater decides to sample the carrots after her brother convinces her that they are really orange twiglets from Jupiter. Full-color illustrations.
