Meet the Author


Saxton Freyman received his first jacknife on his eighth birthday, which he used right away to carve his very first pumpkin. Years later, he used that same knife to create many of the characters in Play With Your Food, this time with fewer injuries!
Saxton and his wife, Mia, started eeBoo Corporation, which makes really cool, and fun products like growth charts, cookie cutters, and stacking blocks. It was through Mia that Sax learned about Joost Elfer's idea of doing a book on carving veggies. Together, they immediately began working on Play With Your Food and Play With Your Pumpkin.

Joost Elffers began creating books in the early 1970's. Since then he has come up with really fun books full of imagination, like Oragami, Cat's Cradle, and Anamorphoses and the Games of Perspective. In 1978, he created his first fruit characters in Die Radieschen Maus im Kaseloch.
Since Joost is a foreigner, he was not too familiar with the Halloween tradition of carving out jack-o-lanterns. He was surprised to see that Americans never noticed the cute nose pumpkins already have-their stem. With his friend, Saxton Freymann, he started the book Play With Your Food

    Enjoyable for adults as well as children!

    Everyone smiles when they open this book. The vegetables are cleverly done, and can be looked at over and over. The message is simple and nice. I give this to every young child I know, and watch their parents turn every page with pleasure.

    Perfect for Teaching Kids About Emotions

    I love this book! The pictures are amazing to look at. My preschool class loves this book. I used it to talk about emotions and how to deal with things like anger.

    Such a Fun Unique Way to Discuss Emotions with Young Kids!

    I was reading how important it is for parents to help thier young children identify the different feelings that they experience. This is the first step in the process of planting the seeds of compassion and empathy for the feelings of others. Who would ever think we could turn to fruits and veggies to teach the lessons! These are truly works of edible art portraying such feelings as anger, fear, surprise, joy, pride, sadness, and jealousy. My two sons love this book and so do I. We read it all the time and sometimes use it to open up discussion about specific reasons that they are feeling a certain way and what they can do or say to others. Even my 3 year old "reads" it to me all by himself. I'm so glad that I found out about this book in my favorite source of quick-read parenting sanity, called "The Pocket Parent." This A-Z guide (written exclusively for parents of preschoolers) offers hundreds of tips to try when the kids challenge your sanity. If you have a 2, 3, 4, or 5-year-old, consider adding these two books to your personal library to refer to again and again.

    Expressive Produce!

    This book is not just about the great photographs--the story helps children learn about emotions. Includes superb rhyming scheme for readers who need help figuring out words. One of the best children's books I have ever read!

    Delicious and Delightful!

    I have never had so much fun reading a 'children's' book. The whimsical expressions created on the fruit and veggies make me laugh out loud every time.
