Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
A boy with a vivid imagination turns lunchtime into an occasion for splendiferous adventures. Ages 3-7. (Sept.)
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2 A young schoolboy dawdles over his lunchtime bowl of noodle soup. After his mother urges him to eat, he spoons the letters B-E-A-R from the soup, and instantly a bear appears, looking somewhat like the honey container on the table. The boy and the bear begin a series of adventures, all of which involve items from the lunch tablea salt shaker becomes a wizard; a teacup becomes a sailboat; a bowl of fruit, a mountain. All of these appear when the boy fishes out appropriate letters from his soup. Illustrations add a dreamy quality to the narration. Soft pastels are washed with textured blue oil paint. Text is printed on honey-colored panels, over which tumble alphabet noodles. An exciting adventure with extra appeal to daydreamers. Nancy Seiner, The Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh

    Wonderfully, imaginative tale

    This story is one that keeps children's interest (which is superbly ironic because it's about daydreaming), not only with the creative story line, but with its intriguing illustrations as well. The boy takes a fascinating journey in his imagination. Pay close attention to the pictures in this book -- you'll never look at your condiments or tableware the same again!
