I Will Never NOT EVER Eat A Tomato

Image hosted by Photobucket.com


I love this book. The pace is rapid and the mixed-media, cut-and-paste appearance of the illustrations is imaginative and eye-catching.

Even the fonts are playful if just a little distracting to the reader.

From New York Times Book Review: "Very funny indeed."

From Publishers Weekly:

A delectable variation on the picky-eater-themed tale...Apt not to be satiated with one serving of the appetizing fare, youngsters will never--not ever--pass up a second helping.

  2. Is she the same person who does the show about the boy and his little sister on Playhouse Disney? My daughter loves that show!!! Haha, I had to ask her who they are, and she informed me that they are Charlie and Lola. Is she correct?
