Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Karen Leggett
This reissue of Judi and Ron Barrett's very first picture book will delight readers who have been giggling for years over Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs or Animals Should Definitely Not Act Like People. From the start, Judi Barrett has taken ideas to their illogical and preposterous extreme. Why not let the fountain become a "self-watering pea patch?" Why not grow carrots in an empty apartment? At least it seemed like a good idea until the carrots started growing through the chandelier in the apartment below! Ron Barrett draws a very upset Fat Mr. Wrental, a very sad Old MacDonald, and a lot of very colorful vegetables. The whimsical story line opens the door to imaginative student creations.

This book was one of the books that I used at a competition in speech skills while in school. I read the book and felt that the descriptions and vivd language was exactly what I needed, as well as being a book that any child would fall in love with, for the same reason.
