Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Judy Silverman
Night in the refrigerator-what do all those cold foods do? Which food is the best? Will there be a contest? Will there be a food-fight? Who can decide who's right? Here is a very funny rhymed look at what happens to the foods in the refrigerator at night.
School Library Journal - School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2--An inane book about a fight that breaks out in a refrigerator when different foods compete to "see who's the best." Bragging turns to one-upsmanship and then degenerates into flying peas and pimientos. The action is described in a singsong rhyme: "Now spinach got mad,/Tomato juice boiled;/Rotini the Pasta/Completely uncoiled." Order is soon restored when a hero sandwich tells the other fridge occupants that they are all important, especially when they combine to make good foods. There is an odd mix of messages here: part nutrition, part cooperation, part self-esteem, all served up with unremarkable watercolor illustrations. Skip this one and save your appetite for something better.--Jane Marino, Scarsdale Public Library, NY
