KETCHUP ON YOUR CORNFLAKES? A Wacky Mix-and-Match Book

This amusing book gives children a chance to play with their food without being reprimanded and without making a mess. The dutch-door pages allow readers to turn the top or bottom of the page to arrive at some strange combinations: ""Do you like jelly in your bed?"" or ""Do you like ice cream on your head?"" The artwork is saturated with color, the images pleasing, direct, and graphically elegant, and the typeface good and bold. The emphasis here is clearly on fun, but children will also enjoy making the correct choices, with color-coded pages to help them along. The book is sturdy, with pages of stout, spiral-bound stock. ""Do you like toothpaste on your apple pie?"" Probably not, but the subtext is clever: Eating and reading are adventures--go for it.
