Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 1-Smiling oranges, mushroom "men," pepper "people," bananas that look like giraffes, eggplant penguins, and cauliflower sheep are just a few of the delightful food sculptures that grace the pages of this fun, educational offering. Freymann explores various concepts including shapes, colors, numbers, letters, and opposites with the help of his signature vegetable and fruit characters. The concepts are well executed, and although the triangular carrot does not have perfectly straight lines, its shape is recognizable. Children will thoroughly enjoy the clever artwork and adorable characters. A visual treat.-Melinda Piehler, Sawgrass Elementary School, Sunrise, FL Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
Kirkus Reviews
Even cleverer than the instantly classic How Are You Peeling? Foods With Moods (1999), this gallery of hilariously animistic grocery-store produce presents common shapes and colors, the alphabet, numbers 1-10, and nine pairs of basic opposites in a truly memorable way. Using mostly black-eyed peas for eyes and taking brilliant advantage of natural variations in shape to create an amazing variety of facial expressions, Freymann skillfully poses a photographed menagerie of leafy fish, cauliflower sheep, banana giraffes and less classifiable creatures made from carved oranges, squash, wonderfully lumpy green peppers and much more against nearly featureless backgrounds. Viewers can't help but respond to the art's broad, infectious humor, and for members of the diapered set, big one- or two-word captions have been added to each page. Vegetarians who refuse to eat any "food with a face" are in deep trouble. (Picture book. 3-6)

    Extremely engaging!

    My baby loves to look at this book! It keeps him quiet and engaged sometimes for hours, especially in the car. He started learning sign language at 1 and would sign the emotions or actions conveyed by the pictures, he'd sign the names of the animals, etc. He can now talk and when we go thru the book he's just a little chatter box telling us colors, emotions, shapes, how many, etc! SO FANTASTIC, I'm looking for more titles to continue this exploration!

    Wonderful!

    My four-year-old daughter and I really enjoyed this book. It's a great way to learn concepts that she'll need for kindergarten next year.

    What is it about this book?

    My 2.5 year old asked to take this out of the library so many times that I finally had to buy a copy! My 3.5 year old also loves it. Very imaginative and very engaging--I only wish my kids would like to eat the veggies as much as they like to read about them!
