Too wrinkly, too squishy, too fruity, too fishy! It’s time to eat, but somebody doesn’t like a single item on his plate. What’s a picky eater to do? This romping text and stylishly bold art make for a delectable board book. Parents (and the picky eaters they love) will recognize themselves in the hilarious antics played out here, while the ending brings reassurance-and with a little luck, a clean plate.
I thought this book was fun at the beginning, with cute illustrations and a picky eater saying how everything is “too” slimy, fishy, etc. But the ending was very abrupt and didn’t make much sense. The book went from saying everything is “too” pickley/etc to the last page just showing an empty plate with the words “so yummy.”
