Review:

Lola will not eat peas. In fact, she won't eat carrots, potatoes, mushrooms, eggs, sausages, cauliflower, cabbage or baked beans. And she will absolutely not eat a tomato.

When Charlie discovers that if peas are green drops from Greenland, and that carrots are orange twigets from Jupiter, even Lola is tempted to clear her plate.

I Will Not Ever Never Eat a Tomato is an hilarious book that picks up a familiar childhood theme and takes it to the extreme. The imaginative presentation of the text, combined with the mish-mash collage of Lauren Child's illustrations brings an everyday dilemma to rip-roaring life and offers an ingenious solution to a problem that can turn into a daily battle between parent and child.

I Will Not Ever Never Eat A Tomato is the best fun a child will ever have at supper time. Age range: 3 to 5--Susan Harrison

Review:

Brilliant (Sunday Telegraph)

So good, it's exhilarating (Independent)

A superb book to make you laugh out loud (Bookseller)

A fun look at the problem of fussy eating (motherandbaby.co.uk)

A mischievous wit and cunning simplicity which, although it may have baffled some traditionalists, is still instantly embraced and understood by children (Books For Keeps)

A paean to the early resistance years that are toddlerdom (The Guardian)

One of my favourite books for children...The story is compelling and the pictures enchanting, but the typography is not what you would expect. The letters vary in shape and size, some lines are straight and others meander across the page. Young children love this; those who cannot yet read pick out the letters; those who can, love the variation and delight at being able to cope with it. (Sue Walker Books For Keeps)

Brilliant design and a delight to share (NLA Guide to Literary Resources)

A wonderful corrective for picky eaters (The Sunday Times)

Your offspring will be drawn in by the off-the-wall visuals that mix line drawings and patterns with photographs, creating a world that is absolutely grounded in reality yet also wildly imaginative (The Guardian)
