Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Jennifer Greene
When it rains in the town of Chewandswallow, people reach for their forks instead of their umbrellas. Instead of rain, giant food items fall from the sky! Kate and Henry prepare dinner and cake in anticipation of Grandpa's return from his vacation. Then, as the children visit Chewandswallow in a dream, they learn how citizens box and ship the food around the world to people who need it—all for free. When Grandpa comes home the next day, he first listens to the bedtime tall tale, and then suggests that pictures of his trip may prove relevant. The book's interest is in the extremely detailed ink and watercolor illustrations. The fanciful integration of giant food items into scenes is fun and beautiful—from camels with pizza slice blankets to a dam of melted ice cream being drained with straws. There are some additional clever visuals, like the shifting of the story's black-and-white pictures to color in the dream world in a transition reminiscent of The Wizard of Oz. The only problem with this edition is that each original full-sized page seems to be condensed to the board book size, making the illustrations busy and the text impossibly small to read. The small size also leads to questions about the audience and purpose of the board book edition, as details and words are likely too small for babies and toddlers, who tend to appreciate blocky objects with bright colors and large text. Likewise, the language and content of the original story are suited for older children and will prove too difficult for younger readers, usually the audience of heavy-duty board books. Still, adults who remember the 1997 original will delight in this "Classic Board Book," and enjoy sharing its enchanting pages with a younger audience. Reviewer: Jennifer Greene
