Reasons Many Adults Might Pickmany adults might pick a picture book because I recognized the author as world famous And Neil Gaiman does everything so why not China Mi ville I think the idea of listing disgusting food page after page has potential but this wasn t all that funny it went on too long and I thought the art from Zak Smith was rather confusing but especially for children though interesting enough for me to check out his book Pictures Showing What Happens on Each Page of Thomas Pynchon s Novel Gravity s Rainbow That was a lot of strange words And some of them I didn t know Actually some of those I still don t know In summary it s a good idea for a children s book with a simple take away message which is not spelled out and chewed and a bunch of interesting words to learn which kids probably will not see in a book anytime soon But there are two big buts The illustrations are terrible And it s not ust me my son didn t like them as well and the average rating of 31 indicates that a lot of other people share our opinion A bunch of words without any context other than probably being food items will stay ust a bunch of words and won t make their way into vocabulary So 3 stars seems like a fair rating A pretty fun children s book about two girls with highly active imaginations who one up each other describing the worst breakfast imaginable The artwork is interesting and unusual but can be a bit difficult to make out in some places I picked this up from the library as I am a Mi ville fan and completionist I d be interested to see what children s reactions to this book would be I received this book in exchange for an honest review from Library Thing and Akashic Books Wow I am fairly certain this book would be the best to teach adjectives with I loved the story and the artwork was uniue.
