Reviewed for Preschool, 2010

This preschooler is hungry! But raisins are too wrinkley, tomatoes are too squishy, and fruit is too, well, fruity! Slimy, slurpy, and burpy things don't make the cut, and even lollipops are too licky and rice too sticky. But suddenly, at the very last page, something comes across the table that is yummy enough to finish to the last crumb, and all of the grumpy faces from previous pages are replaced with a giant grin. Preschoolers will love the extremely expressive looks on this picky eater's face as he refuses every option in the cupboard, and parents will love the happy ending! (Bloomsbury, $11.99)
