The Cod's Tale meets The Truth About Poop and Pee in this fascinating look at cultural history through the lens of the hot dog.

From a Roman emperor's snack to a hobo's franks-and-beans, from ballpark treat to astronaut food, there's more wonder in a wiener thank you might think.

About the Author:

Adrienne Sylver grew up in Ohio, where she rooted for the Cleveland Indians and learned to appreciate a good stadium hot dog. A reporter, she lives in Miami with her family.

Elwood H. Smith (www.elwoodsworld.com ) is the illustrator of many books for children, including the Pirate Pete and Pirate Joe series, and also works regularly for publications such as Newsweek, The Wall Street Journal, and The New York Times. Smith lives in Rhinebeck, New York.

From Booklist:

The fact that there is so much argument about who made the first hot dog says a lot about its appeal. (If you say “frank,” you're siding with the Frankfurt, Germany, contingent; if you say “wiener,” you're making the folks in Vienna, Austria, happy.) This zany picture book takes eaters—that is, readers—through the snack's journey from Roman pig-intestine delicacy to its modern ubiquity at ball parks, cookouts, and dinner tables. Key for the American audience is the nineteenth-century immigration that led to dog stands gaining popularity in hot spots like Coney Island. Sidebars patterned with a retro-cool look clash with the Mad magazine–style cartoon art, but the visual chaos is intentional and plays into the mustard-stained mitts of the target audience. Fun facts fly fast and furious: L.A. is America's dog-hungriest city; the wiener equivalent at South African sporting events is beetroot salad. Also included are regional dog differences (get that ketchup off my Chicago Dog!), the rise of the veggie dog, recipes, and plenty of mouth-watering photos. Don't read before lunch. Grades K-3. --Daniel Kraus
