About the Author

Eric-Shabazz Larkin didn't discover he had a graffiti artist inside of him until he drew the city skyline on the wall of his childhood home in Virginia. He made his picture-book illustration debut with Farmer Will Allen and the Growing Table, an American Library Association Notable Book. A Moose Boosh marks his author-illustrator debut. He lives in New York City.

Read an Excerpt

A Moose Boosh
So I said, "Sorry, sir, I did not order this...
this most peculiar dish."

"No," the waiter said. "It's an amuse-bouche,
compliments of the chef."

"Ah, well, that's very nice. So what's the compliment?"

"No, there is no compliment, just this tiny little dish."

"But I told you already that I did not order this."

"No, what I'm trying to say is that this is the chef's gift."

"Oh, I understand. My apology.
I just have one more question.
I don't mean to push,
but did you call this a Moose Boosh?"

"No, sir, it's a French word, a bit abstruse.
It's an mouse-bouche. And tasty, too."

A Desk Is Not A Dinner Table
You can eat dinner at a round table
or a square table.
An oblong table
or a pear-shaped table.

But a desk,
is not a dinner table.

You can eat dinner at the beach
or eat it on a boat.
Eat with a bikini
or eat in a coat.
Eat upstairs.
Eat outside.
Eat feeling fat
or feeling thinner.

But a desk? No.
A desk is not a place for dinner.

Call it “food in face.”
Call it “stuffing belly.”
Call it the internet
with toast and jelly.

Dinner at a desk
needs a re-label.
Because a desk,
will never be a dinner table.
