Overview

From the creators of the bestseller CLOUDY WITH A CHANCE OF MEATBALLS comes another zany, laugh-out-loud picture book!

The Town of Left and the Town of Right are separated by a dotted yellow line, and no one on either side can remember how things got to be this way! One day, an unlucky citizen crosses the line--forcing the Order of the Ambidextrous Knights who guard the border to take action. Unfortunately, the only ammunition they have around is marshmallows--50,000 boxes worth! So begins the Marshmallow Incident, a tale of Left and Right, and Right and Wrong, with an incredibly silly but delicious dose of Mallo-Puffs and Marsh-Pillows thrown in. Kids will read it once and then beg for s'more!

Editorial Reviews

For reasons that no one can apparently remember, the Town of Left and the Town of Right have been distinct, hostile zones, separated by a dotted line and guarded by the Order of the Ambidextrous Knights. One day, their uneasy peace is broken when some unlucky soul strays across the line. To stop this unthinkable invasion, the Knights unload all their advanced weaponry, which consists of 50,000 boxes of marshmallows. Judi and Ron Barrett transport us into a surrealistic realm that all fans of their classic Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs will appreciate.

Meet the Author


Judi Barrett, who takes her marshmallows crispy on the outside and squishy inside, is the author of numerous picture books, including the classic bestsellers Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs, soon to be a major motion picture, and its sequel, Pickles to Pittsburgh. She lives in Connecticut and Brooklyn, New York, where she also teaches art to kindergartners.

Ron Barrett has illustrated many books for children and adults, including Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs and Pickles to Pittsburgh. The drawings for his very first book with Judi Barrett, Old MacDonald Had an Apartment House, were exhibited in the Louvre. To research the pictures for this book, Ron traveled to the great castles of Scotland and Wales, and to his local supermarket in New York City (for marshmallows, of course!).
