The creator of the acclaimed CLARICE BEAN, THAT'S ME cooks up a droll and ingenious treat for picky eaters and the men and girls who love them. Or will she? There are many, many things Lola absolutely will not eat, including— and especially— tomatoes. She won't eat her mashed potatoes (until Charlie explains they are cloud fluff from the pointiest peak of Mount Fuji ). Join two endearing siblings for a smorgasbord of fun in Lauren Child's witty story concerning the triumph of imagination over proclivity. A VERY fussy eater. Lola can be a fussy eater. She won't eat her carrots (until big brother Charlie reveals that they are truly orange twiglets from Jupiter ).
Lola could possibly be a actually fussy eater."Not convinced, Lola's older sister Charlie has an concept. She tells Lola that the orange things on the table are not carrots, but"orange twiglets from Jupiter"and peas are in fact"green drops from Greenland."One day, after rattling off her long list of despised foods, she ends with the vehement pronouncement,"And I absolutely will never not ever eat a tomato. And in the end, might she even eat a tomato?"Mashed potatoes, when pitched as"cloud fluff from the pointiest peak of Mount Fuji"suddenly seem appealing to Lola. Carrots are for rabbits and peas are"too tiny and too green.
Lauren Child's wacky, expressive sketches of Lola and Charlie (a lot like those in Clarice Bean, That's Me) are cut out and superimposed on all sorts of textures and patterns from wallpaper to wood. Fuzzy, enlarged photographs of bowls of peas, or fish sticks, or big carrots are pasted suitable on top to great impact. The author's dedication?"With love from Lauren / who is keen on Marmite / but would rather not eat a raisin."(Ages 3 to 8) --Karin Snelson This funny, endearing appear at how children's tastes may be based much more on preconception than taste buds is sure to infuse levity into the daily dinner-table struggle.
