The food-becomes-animal mavericks who brought you the popular Dog Food and How Are You Peeling? carve another delicious charmer with this adorably inspired spin on babies.
Using their technique of transforming fruits and vegetables into cute infants, Saxton Freymann and Joost Elffers have created a treasure full of puppies, kittens, baby giraffes, and more. Vividly colored backgrounds and simple designs showcase the trove of babies, such as a cauliflower lamb looking innocent and curious and a sweet-potato baby alligator putting its head down with a wide grin and bright eyes. Other babies include a surprised baby hippo, a wee radish mouse, a peanut owlet, and a kiwi baby monkey, but the most impressive baby is the peachy human toddler at the end, crawling along happily and smiling broadly.
A marvelous addition to their (already) super-sweet work, Baby Food will touch your inner soft spot and leave you totally cooing for more. Joost and Elffers's creations are just the thing for learning basic words and animals, making object learning a pure treat for kids and a breezy, amusing read for adults. With this cornucopia of critters tickling your fancy, you'll surely do a double take the next time you're in the produce aisle. Matt Warner
