Overview

Peanut Butter & Cupcake by Terry Border

For fans of The Day the Crayons Quit, Little Pea, or How Are You Peeling?

What’s a little piece of bread to do when he’s feeling lonely? Find a friend, of course!

And that’s exactly what Peanut Butter tries to do. But sometimes friends are hard to come by, especially when Hamburger has to walk his (hot) dogs, Cupcake is too busy building castles in her sprinkle box, and Egg laughs so hard he starts to crack up! Does Peanut Butter have a soulmate? Young readers will know the answer long before Peanut Butter does and laugh along with each mismatched pairing.

In a story that pairs silliness with poignancy, and friendship with anthropomorphic food, Terry Border, the photography mastermind behind the Bent Objects project, makes a triumphant entrance into the children's book world. Complete with a rhyming refrain, this is sure to be a favorite family read-aloud—and laugh-aloud.

Never give up when you're having fun! In this picture book, Peanut Butter is new in town and tries to make new friends but he keeps pairing up with the wrong things like egg and meatball. His adventures cracked me up. It’s a friendship book. The point is that you never give up and when you are having fun, others will join you. I think that’s an important lesson for all kids to learn. I liked how the author used real food pictures. It made me so hungry that I wanted to eat the book. I especially liked cupcake. I think cupcake’s castle looked about 20 feet tall. Yummy! I think four and five year olds would like this book because it is funny. It’s a great book about making friends. I give it five stars. Review by Young Mensan Cameron H., age 4, New Mexico Mensa

I brought this book when it was my turn to read aloud to a second grade class. The book is full of visual gags and funny wordplay. The children really enjoyed it. I was a little stressed about finding a readaloud that was not too babyish for 7-8 year olds,and this book was perfect.

I bought this book for my sister who is a kindergarten teacher. I love it! The pictures are great and the story is predictable enough for any child to follow while they laugh along. I would purchase it for any teacher or classroom as I know the kids and teacher would all enjoy it.

This is a wonderful book (and was a great steal half off!). It is a nice story of friendship, but the realistic pictures are great for my toddler to look at while we read.

This book is great.  both my 2.5 yr old son and I love it.  It's one of his favorite books.  It's entertaining both to the child and the reader.   Writing is clever, and illustrations are very cute.  I would definitely recommend.

This book is filled with humor as Peanut Butter tries to find a friend to play with. Children learn what goes well with peanut butter but also a greater lesson on sharing and friendship. Ages 3-5 will find this book funny and highly entertaining. The illustrations are colorful and well done. I would recommend this book to other parents/grandparents to share with their children/grandchildren. A surprising delight!
