French Fries!

Rose Pudding!

No wonder Max loves his job. Who wouldn't want to dine on these delicious dishes? The new king, that's who. And if the new king has his way, it won't just be their job that the cook and Max lose!

Kids love to spoil their dinner. It is a natural law or something. I remember I loved to do it to avoid things like peas and spinach. While the avoidance rule still holds for those two veggies, this book illustrates the problem of trying to feed a fussy child who just won't eat. All parents will identify with this story and all kids need to hear it. Try everything once. Explore new tastes. I think we all wish we had a cook like the one in this story. The illustrations are great. The dog is cute and the lesson well worth the read. Perfect for classrooms, preschool storytime or bedtime. I will recommend this to friends and customers.
