Who’s feeding whom? Matilda Macaroni loves to try new foods! Unfortunately, her parents don’t. They only like pizza delivered, burgers from a bag, and noodles from a box. What’s a girl with adventurous tastes to do? The engaging heroine of this fun, twisted picture book manages to turn the tables on her finicky parents and teach them that dinner can be more than chicken nuggets. There’s also a recipe for quiche that young cooks can try!
This is a very funny take on the classic picky eating problem… it’s the parents who are picky eaters! Watch for classic picky eater-isms throughout the book along with a myriad of very expressive faces as the parents move from revolution and skepticism to enjoyment as Matilda slowly works her magic. Those looking to help picky eaters may pick up a few tips and everyone will enjoy a few smiles. This book gets bonus points in my book for giving a nod to cooking safety!
