About This Book
Lola is a very fussy eater. Carrots are for rabbits and peas are "too small and
too green." 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." Not convinced, Lola's older sister Charlie has an idea. 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." Mashed
potatoes, when pitched as "cloud fluff from the pointiest peak of Mount Fuji"
suddenly seem appealing to Lola. And in the end, might she even eat a tomato?
Lauren Child's wacky, expressive sketches of Lola and Charlie (much 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 right on top to great effect. This funny, endearing look at how children's tastes can be based more on preconception than taste buds is sure to infuse levity into the daily dinner-table struggle. The author's dedication? "With love from Lauren / who is keen on Marmite / but would rather not eat a raisin." --Karin Snelson
