Lunch (Red Fox Picture Books)

 
9780099266914: Lunch (Red Fox Picture Books)

It's time for lunch, and one little mouse is "famished"! In fact, he's so hungry that once he starts eating, he can't stop. He sinks his teeth into a crisp" white "turnip, gobbles up some "orange "carrots, devours an ear of" yellow" corn, then tosses back some tender "green" peas. He's full, but this mouse keeps on munching until his bulging belly won't hold another bite.

Parents will see their own toddlers in this perky tale, and toddlers won't get enough of the gregarious little mouse. They'll proudly identify the colors of his (and their) favorite foods, and enjoy guessing what fruit or vegetable he'll eat next. Color-savvy readers are sure to spot the rainbow contained in the background pages-- and almost everyone will agree that this is one book about colors that makes the plain old primaries look positively pale!

About the Author:

Denise Fleming has written and illustrated many children's books, including "In the Tall, Tall Grass," "Shout! Shout It Out"!, and "Sleepy, Oh So Sleepy." She won a Caldecott Honor for "In the Small, Small Pond." Denise published her first painting in the third grade, when she started taking classes at the Toledo Museum of Art and one of her paintings was chosen to be the cover of a teacher's magazine. She now works primarily with paper, by pouring colored paper pulp through hand-cut stencils. She lives in Toledo, Ohio.

Review:

"Fleming's feisty mouse peeks out of a hole in the wall and spies a table laden with goodies-a smorgasbord of fruits and vegetables in bold colors. With each turn of the page, the hungry mouse samples one colorful food after another: crisp white turnip, tasty orange carrot, sweet yellow corn, tender green peas. Children will love to guess what food comes next..." --"Booklist"
"A well designed, joyous romp through food and color." --"School Library Journal," starred review
"A beautifully crafted book." --"Kirkus Reviews, "pointer
"Soup's on in this tummy-tempting concept book." --"Publishers Weekly"
