Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Everitt's (Mean Soup) latest picture book again depicts a fantasy world where kids rule. This time out an adventurous girl hungry for something different doesn't choose soup or ``something nice'' but rather opts to have a TV dinner-literally. Daisy Lee chomps on the various channels and programming, crunches the knobs and buttons, and saves the remote control for last. Although she claims the fare tasted great, a Godzilla movie and other shows running loose in her stomach cause some temporary queasiness-but nothing serious enough to deter her from making even bigger plans for dessert. Everitt's rhyming, breezy writing tries hard to buoy this flimsy premise. Children may welcome the irreverent mood here, though many of them may question the logic behind Daisy's desire to devour an appliance. The visuals here, however, stand out, as Everitt's energetic and loosely rendered gouaches threaten to escape the colorful and inventive borders on each page. Ages 3-8. (Sept.)
School Library Journal
PreS-K-``Instead of peas,/instead of soup,/instead of rice,/or something nice.../Daisy Lee ate the TV.'' One show at a time, one piece at a time, she eats it all, saving the remote control until last. When Godzilla starts at 8 on channel 7, her stomach roars and growls ``and [she] burped a show on channel 9!...For dessert, she's having the house!'' Design-bordered gouache paintings in garishly bright colors have some adult humor beyond the ken of most preschoolers-talking heads and Wheel of Misfortune, for example. A slim offering that won't be easily digested.-Virginia Opocensky, formerly at Lincoln City Libraries, NE
Ilene Cooper
"Instead of peas, / instead of soup, / instead of rice, / or something nice . 20. 20. / Daisy Lee ate the TV." Everitt goes on to detail how Daisy Lee chows down channels two and three, the news, the game shows, and, eventually, the television itself. Although the rhyme can be outrageous in the way children like, it is mostly just silly and would fall flat without Everitt's kicky new-wave artwork, which fills up the pages with geometric shapes, squiggly lines, and decorative details. Executed in gouache on watercolor paper, the pictures are vibrantly colored, and even Daisy Lee's face (thanks to a bad case of indigestion) changes from green to mauve to mustard. For larger library collections, especially where Everitt fans are found.
