Though the stories are funny in this book, getting my four-year-old to listen to them is a bit like getting her to eat broccoli - too much work. She enjoyed thumbing through the illustrations, but has shown little interest in having these stories read to her. I read through them all and found them mildly amusing, but I think it is still obvious to kids that we've gotten this book to teach them to eat their veggies. Rats! Have to find another technique on that front - the book did have some ideas I haven't tried at least.

Summary

Add a Summary

James is a very picky eater. His dad has to get creative—very creative—in order to get James to eat foods he thinks he doesn’t like. He presents James with a series of outlandish scenarios packed with fanciful and gross kid-friendly details—like pre-chewed gum as an alternative to broccoli and lumpy oatmeal that grows so big it eats the dog—in an effort to get James to eat. But it is eventually James himself who discovers that some foods are not so bad, after all, if you’re willing to give them a try.
This irreverently hilarious early reader, illustrated in full color, explores a universal point of contention between parent and child in a playful, satisfying way.
