KIRKUS REVIEW

A whimsical kaleidoscope of watercolor and gouache illustrations whets the appetite of voracious children eating their way through breakfast, lunch, snacks, dinner, and dessert in 16 delectable, poetic menu choices. The table of contents labeled “Today’s Menu” serves every kid’s favorites—aromatic, baked cinnamon buns, macaroni and cheese, wiggly Jell-o, crispy potato chips, and sandwich cookies. Table manners, though listed, are quickly dismissed as boring. “Mango” will induce juice to drip down your chin and “Pasta Perfect” will clarify all of those different pastas and their uses. The artist’s note describes for a child’s benefit how the illustrations were conceived and produced (a mixture of painting and various ways of creating textures). Together, the poetry and illustrations fit tightly, like a sandwich cookie—meant for each other and yummy to the core! (Picture book. 4-6)
